American Indian Women Reviews


"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."-Clara Sue Kidwell, Women's Studies International Forum -- Clara Sue Kidwell * Women's Studies International Forum *
"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."-Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz, Western American Literature -- Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz * Western American Literature *
"Bataille and Sands make a significant contribution to scholars, students, and general readers interested in autobiography, biography, the oral and written tradition of American Indian literature, literary criticism, history, and ethnographic studies."-North Dakota Quarterly * North Dakota Quarterly *
