This paper describes a research project with Native American girls at Sherman Indian High School (Riverside, California). This work was guided by Sherman's Cultural Leader, Lori Sisquoc, and Dr Jessa Rogers, a visiting Aboriginal researcher. This paper outlines the Talking Circle Methodology employed by Native female students at Sherman and the major themes that emerged from this Indigenous research. Native students in this project shared stories about their experiences as young Native women living away from home for schooling. Their voices express the challenges they encounter and experience as contemporary Sherman students and Native young women today.
