About the book:

From Booklist: Gr. 9^-12. The roles and contributions of North American Indian women throughout history are the focus of this attractive, inviting volume, lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color photographs and occasional drawings. The narrative describes the traditional duties and responsibilities of women within their tribes and how some managed to preserve particular customs and traditional art forms despite the changes forced on them by non-Indians. Biographical sketches of such well-known Indian women as Mary Musgrove, Molly Brant, and contemporary leader Wilma Mankiller are included. Only a cursory tribal context is given, but the book still manages to recognize the uniqueness of each tribe. Useful as an introductory text or for reference; an extensive bibliography is appended. - Karen Hutt
