We are Dancing for You: Native Feminisms and the Revitalization of Women’s Coming-of-age Ceremonies was named the Best First Book in Native American and Indigenous Studies on Friday night at the conference, which draws more than 1,000 scholars working in the fields of Native American and Indigenous studies throughout the world.

If Risling Baldy’s book sounds familiar, it should. The Journal ran an excerpt from it as our Aug. 2, 2018, cover story, “The Flower Dancers.” We suggest you check out the excerpt here and pick up a copy, available at local book stores. And check out Risling Baldy’s other columns for the Journal here, including her most recent offering, “How We Let This Happen,” which takes on issues of concentration camps detaining migrant children and the genocide of Native people in California.

And please join us in giving Risling Baldy a hearty congratulations on this prestigious honor.
