Holding Our World Together Ojibwe Women and the Survival of the Community by Brenda J

Review From User :

Thorough and poignant narrative of Ojibwe women's role as the glue holding together their communities from the days of fur traders through the termination/assimilation era and beyond. Negotiating with traders, wild rice farming, beginning and maintaining grassroots organizations to empower and organize during urbanization are just a few of the methods gone into in detail. Paints an extremely clear picture of resiliency and these women's understanding of the importance of working for their common good while a breathtakingly ironic U.S. government continuously tried to annihilate, steal, metaphorically rape, and eventually Westernize these peoples, their lands, and their cultures.
