Indian women's autobiographies have been slighted because of the assumption that women had a secondary and insignificant role in Indian society. Gretchen M. Bataille and Kathleen Mullen Sands cogently demonstrate in this book the creative vitality of autobiographies that, despite differences in style and purpose, clarify the centrality of women in American Indian cultures. Included is a comprehensive, annotated bibliography or works by and about American Indian women.
"This readable and engaging work ... marks a turning point in a developing literature on American Indian women, being a good general summary of all previous work, and making future work more possible. ... The study of American Indian women not only reveals the fundamental nature of Indian societies, it also provides a perspective for the contemporary women's movement."
"An important contribution to the fields of Native/American Indian studies and women's studies. Its approach is innovative and suggests wide possibilities for further exploration."
