About this title


This oral autobiography of two remarkable Cree women tells their life story against a backdrop of government discrimination, First Nations activism, and the resurgence of First Nations communities. Nellie Carlson and Kathleen Steinhauer, who helped to organize the Indian Rights for Indian Women movement in western Canada in the 1960s, fought the Canadian government's interpretation of treaty and Aboriginal rights, the Indian Act, and the male power structure in their own communities to win equal rights for Aboriginal women and children. After decades of activism and court battles, they succeeded in changing these oppressive regulations, benefiting thousands of First Nations women and their descendants. Those interested in human rights, activism, history, and Native Studies will find that these personal stories, enriched by detailed notes and photographs, form a passionate record of an important, continuing struggle.
