9780803282865: Indigenous American Women: Decolonization, Empowerment, Activism (Contemporary Indigenous Issues)

Oklahoma Choctaw scholar Devon Abbott Mihesuah offers a frank and absorbing look at the complex, evolving identities of American Indigenous women today, their ongoing struggles against a centuries-old legacy of colonial disempowerment, and how they are seen and portrayed by themselves and others. Mihesuah first examines how American Indigenous women have been perceived and depicted by non-Natives, including scholars, and by themselves. She then illuminates the pervasive impact of colonialism and patriarchal thought on Native women’s traditional tribal roles and on their participation in academia. Mihesuah considers how relations between Indigenous women and men across North America continue to be altered by Christianity and Euro-American ideologies. Sexism and violence against Indigenous women has escalated; economic disparities and intratribal factionalism and “culturalism” threaten connections among women and with men; and many women suffer from psychological stress because their economic, religious, political, and social positions are devalued. In the last section, Mihesuah explores how modern American Indigenous women have empowered themselves tribally, nationally, or academically. Additionally, she examines the overlooked role that Native women played in the Red Power movement as well as some key differences between Native women "feminists" and "activists."

Review:

"Particularly insightful, thought-provoking, Ýand¨ well-researched."--Rodney Frey, "Journal of American Ethnic History." -- Rodney Frey "Journal of American Ethnic History"

"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,"

"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."

"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."

"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"

"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."
