Silko has signed the title page. Part of the Womens Writers Texts and Contexts Series. Yellow Woman, first published in 1993, was followed by Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit, published in 1996. The works both deal with Laguna society before Christian missionaries arrived, as well as political statements against racist policies. These writings focus on the strong connections Silko has to the oral tradition of her past.
