In this important work Annette Angela Portillo examines Native American women's autobiographical discourses and argues that the complexity of these life stories resists generic classifications. The "sovereign stories" and "blood memories" not only reveal the multiple layers of history and identity shared by each author but demonstrate how their narratives are grounded in ancestral memory and land. Portillo analyzes traditional autobiographies and memoirs alongside interviews and social media to explore the intricacies of Native American women's voices and the stories that they share.
