Written by Kelly Fournel.
Published by Second Story Press, 2007.


This new title in the First Nations Series for Young Readers profiles ten outstanding women leaders. They include Suzanne Rochon-Burnett, a Métis broadcaster, journalist and First Nations advocate, winner of the Governor General’s Award for her work on Native Women’s rights; Susan Aglukark, Inuit singer and songwriter; and Emily Pauline Johnson—Canada’s first published First Nations poet. All of these trailblazing women are role models who have raised the profile of indigenous culture in North America.

From heroines of the past to women making new history today, Great Women from our First Nations reminds young readers of the extraordinary contributions of First Nations women to our country and to our daily lives.

About the author: Kelly Fournel is a writer and editor who works in a library in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Her father’s family is Manitoba Métis and her great-great-great grandfather was a middleman for the Hudson’s Bay Company. This is her first book.

This book is intended for ages 9 to 13.
