Okanagan Women's Voices: Syilx and Settler Writing and Relations, 1870s - 1960s is a new and unique history book that places together writings by both Indigenous and settler women of the Okanagan. This approach has led to “new perspectives and understanding” (Okanagan Women’s Voices, Introduction, p. vi). Join us in hearing from all three editors of this important book regarding their editing process and the decisions and discoveries they made.
