Description: Fine. Softcover.
This book focuses on these remarkable women: white writer and activist Helen Hunt Jackson, whose 1884 bestseller Ramona has been called "the Indian Uncle Tom's Cabin"; the Paiute lecturer, educator, and political activist Sarah Winnemucca, whose Life Among the Piutes is believed to be the first Native American woman's autobiography; and Victoria Howard, the Clackamas Chinook storyteller who worked with Melville Jacobs in 1929 to transcribe hundreds of narratives, ethnographies, and songs. Senier is the first author to analyze the texts of these three women so closely. She convincingly argues that these complex texts have been misinterpreted as supporting the policy of assimilation, when they actually opposed the male, authoritarian voice.
