Book Club: I am Woman

In December, we will discuss I am Woman written by one of the foremost Native writers in North America, Lee Maracle, at our book club.  In this visionary book, Lee Maracle links her First Nations heritage with feminism. 

"Maracle has created a book of true wisdom, intense pride, sisterhood and love." - Milestones Review

"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 myself personally." - from the Preface
