My Home As I Remember is an anthology of women's literary and artistic achievement produced by Native Women in the Arts. This publication contains memoir, poetry, fiction, song and visual art by 62 Native women representing nearly 25 Nations, including well-known and beginning writers. The theme for this volume is Home - its meaning, the connection of house with body, mind and spirit, the home we have always dreamed of, and home in a variety of landscapes. The quality of the writing by First Nations, Metis, Inuit and Indigenous women from Hawai'I, New Zealand and Mexico is exceptional. Several generations of women are represented and their voices speak from the heart about identity and the place of Indigenous people in the 21st century. The works of nineteen visual artists are included with colour reproductions of their pieces. Biographical sketches are included for all submissions making this third publication from Native Women in the Arts a significant contribution to the literary and artistic legacy of Aboriginal women. This book is highly recommended for senior high school and university courses dealing with the arts of First Nations and Native women's issues.
