The woman is the planter, the cultivator, the harvester of the corn, and this [rite] is meant to portray the important part she plays in the drama of life.

'The Spirit of Indian Women'
By Judith Fitzgerald (Editor), Michael Oren Fitzgerald (Editor), Janine Pease (Introduction)

Purchase Book:


The Spirit of Indian Women provides a unique glimpse into a world that is almost inaccessible in our time. Through the combined power of photos, art, and the wisdom of traditional voices, modern readers can come to feel something of the timeless spirit of Indian women.

A gift to all, presenting the thoughts, hopes and roles of women from tribal nations....also rich in rare photographs.
