The present study explored the lived experiences of Native American women and possible reasons why they perceive themselves in the way that they do. Female participants (N=10) were asked to share about their lives for approximately an hour each. Participants were encouraged to discuss their Native American heritage as well as their opinions on Media. Participants' views on media were varied. However, many participants felt that they were more connected to the earth than their White counterparts were As many Native American women have grown up living in a White-dominant world, this may affect how they perceive themselves.
