First Voices: An Aboriginal Women's Reader edited by Patricia Monture and Patricia McGuire is a collection of articles that examine many of the struggles that Aboriginal women have faced, and continue to face, in Canada. Sections include: Profiles of Aboriginal Women; Identity; Territory; Activism; Confronting Colonialism; the Canadian Legal System; and Indigenous Knowledges. Photographs and poetry are also included. There are few books on Aboriginal women in Canada; this anthology provides a valuable addition to the literature and fills a critical gap in the fields of Native Studies, Cultural Studies and Women's Studies. Essays include: An Interview with Katsi'tsakwas Ellen Gabriel, of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation, Turtle Clan by Kim Anderson; and Sky Woman Lives On: Contemporary Examples of Mothering the Nation by Lina Sunseri.
