    2. Equal parts enlightenment, sorrow, hope, and frustration. A wonderful discussion between various leaders of a few of the tribes native to North America (and Hawaii) who happen to be women.

    3. It was so hard to put this book down. For those of you who wish to learn about the beliefs, thoughts and feelings of Indigenous women, here is the book for you.

    4. LJ user pachakuti:The late Wilma Mankiller (rest her soul) gathered thoughts and reflections from 19 Native women, on things like the meaning of spirituality, the importance of sovereignty, and what it means to be an indigenous woman today. This read is important because feminism and women-centered writing in the public eye tends to be so overwhelmingly white-washed. Also, Ms. Mankiller chose her writers very well indeed and this is a book I reflected on and re-read parts of for days after I fir [...]

    5. Essential reading even if it is over a decade old. Mankiller calls this collection of thoughts from native women a "gathering" and it is a unique assemblage of oral history, personal sharing, and insightful commentary. Recommended.

    6. I received this book through inter library loan twice. It's the kind of book that is hard to pick up, because it doesn't tell one story with a through line. There are a dozen or more indigenous women from a large variety of tribes, including a native Hawaiian. Wilma Mankiller tells some of her story at the beginning of each chapter and then the other voices come in. Some of their stories and admonishments overlap. Many of these are not for a white western woman. But I thought it as important to [...]

    7. Every Day is a Good Day is an extraordinary book by extraordinary women. Compiled and edited by Wilma Mankiller, this book is in an interesting format - Wilma asks a question, then gives you the answers provided by each participant. I found it very easy to follow, and very interesting.I had read this book in the past and was pleased to find it again. It is one I will need to read yet again to get through this life.

    8. I would probably give this about a 3.5 if would allow half stars. I very much appreciated the perspective of these indigenous women, but sometimes I felt the thoughts they shared were redundant from chapter to chapter. It seemed like I flew through reading the first half but started to get tired of reading it about mid-way. It is still a good book to read to see these different viewpoints.

    9. Some parts were moving. Some parts were inspirational. Certainly opened my eyes and my heart to history and indigenous cultures. However, sprinkled throughout were some negative lines that were telling me what I as a white woman thought and felt.

    10. This book came into my life right when I needed it. These women's words helped to re-center myself. They helped to remind me what is important in my life and what I want to be focused on. Their strength gives me courage and for that I am very grateful.

    11. It was very interesting to read the thoughts of indigenous that are shared among the various tribes. It truly was an educational book, and it made me sad that, as invaders, we have so ignored their values. We could learn so much if only we (and our politicians) would listen.

    12. I really enjoyed this book. Wilma Mankiller was one of twenty women from various tribes and backgrounds that reflected on specific topics such as ceremonies. I highly recommend this book.

    13. I appreciate what this book does, and many of the stories are quite interesting, but the book style doesn't appeal much to me.
