I Am Woman: A Native Perspective on Sociology and Feminism
I Am Woman represents my personal struggle with womanhood, culture, traditional spiritual beliefs and political sovereignty, written during a time when that struggle was not over. My original intention was to empower Native women to take to heart their own personal struggle for Native feminist being. The changes made in this second edition of the text do not alter my original intention. It remains my attempt to present a Native woman's sociological perspective on the impacts of colonialism on us, as women, and on my self personally.

This text challenged me in so many ways. As an Indigenous student, it really helped shape my understanding of the gendered process of colonialism. This text was as empowering as it was difficult. Beautiful text and a necessary read for anyone interested in Indigenous studies/issues!
