Every Day Is a Good Day: Reflections by Contemporary Indigenous Women
Wilma Mankiller

Everyday Is a Good Day is an evocative look at the experiences of Native American women.The woman's perspective of community, resolving differences and spirituality inspired me to really think about how we are handling these issues in today's world. Wilma Mankiller brought together many wise voices in this book, and I hope it inspires our University of Oklahoma students to rethink the way our nation/our city/our world assumes community versus individualism. We have a lot to learn.
