This empowering picture book autobiography tells the fascinating journey of Sharice Davids, one of the first Native American women elected to Congress, and the first LGBTQ congressperson to represent Kansas. Includes 6 pages of back matter!

When Sharice Davids was young, she never thought she’d be in Congress. And she never thought she’d be one of the first Native American women in Congress. During her campaign, she heard from a lot of doubters. They said she couldn’t win because of how she looked, who she loved, and where she came from. But here’s the thing: Everyone’s path looks different and everyone’s path has obstacles. And this is the triumphant story of Sharice Davids’ path to Congress.

Beautifully illustrated by Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley, an Ojibwe Woodland artist, this powerful autobiographical picture book follows Sharice’s remarkable journey to becoming a U.S. congresswoman. Along the way Sharice discovers her big voice and discovers that everyone deserves to be seen – and heard!

The back matter includes information about the Ho-Chunk written by former Ho-Chunk President Jon Greendeer, an artist note, and an inspiring letter to children from Sharice.Author’s note. Illustrator’s note. “About the Ho-Chunk.” Full-color digital illustrations created with Procreate.
