Available in paperback only.  Connie Fife (Cree), ed., The Colour of Resistance: A Contemporary Collection of Writing by Aboriginal Women. 1993.

This amazing anthology—more than 70 pieces of poems, stories and essays by Aboriginal women in Canada and the US—speaks to pain, tragedy, grief, heartbreak and turmoil, but also to the great love and courage and the collective memory that is the color of resistance. Fife writes that this anthology “is a testament to our lives, a re-invention of our survival. In this book, Native women proclaim that ‘settler’ literature is no longer acceptable as representative of our own creative process, nor does its confines do justice to our journey through the history of colonialism in our homeland.” Despite the best intentions of the dominant society to silence Indian women’s voices, “they emerge clearly here, and louder than ever before.”
