Editorial Reviews

Review

"Particularly insightful, thought-provoking, [and] well-researched." - Rodney Frey, Journal of American Ethnic History "Well worth reading to learn how a perceptive insider views the current state of Native affairs." - Lillian Ackerman, Montana, The Magazine of Western History "As many of these issues relate to decolonization, the legacy of colonialism, and feminism, the essays speak to a larger audience than just American Indian women or people involved with American Indian Studies. Thos whose work spans both activism and scholarship are likely to find something of interest between these covers. The book may also help those who have little experience with activist-scholarship such as Milhesuah's work come to a better understanding of what she and others like her are trying to do." - Stacy Schlegel, Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History "A powerful book about the impact of colonization on the indigenous peoples of North America... These essays should be required reading in every research seminar... And they clearly establish Milhesuah as a leading indigenous intellectual." - Theda Perdue, Great Plains Quarterly "Her observations on research and writing about Native women are valuable reminders to other scholars in the field... Scholars whose research deals with Native women will find Mihesuah's Indigenous American Women a worthy resource." - Patrice Hollrah, Western American Literature "Native and non-Native feminist scholars will find much to debate in this collection, which accomplishes its primary purposes - contributing to a growing body of scholarly literature by Indigenous women, confronting difficult topics frankly and directly, demonstrating ethical research, and providing catalysts for much-needed converstaions about the complex nature of feminisms and activist agendas." - Amanda J. Cobb (Chickasaw), New Mexico Historical Review

Format: Paperback
Indigenous American Women: Decolonization, Empowerment, Activism by Devon Abbott Mihesuah (Professor of Applied Indigenous Studies and History, North Arizona University) studies how Native American women have been perceived by non-Natives, scholars, and themselves. Professor Mihesuah sets forth guidelines as to how Native American women can empower themselves tribally, nationally, and academically, while emphasizing the importance of getting involved in all facets of the Native American community. Indigenous American Women is very highly recommended for Contemporary Native American Studies and Women's Studies collections and reading lists.

The author has put forth a fine compilation of subjects which will challenge both those outside of Native America and within it's ranks to open their eyes to some harsh realities and true strengths of American Indian women. Highly recommend.

This book was interesting at times and boring at times. I would overall rate it a good book though. :)
