"Believing that it is important to privilege the voices of Native American women over those of Eurocentric male writers of Native American history, Mann presents four essays that explore issues of Native American history and culture. The major topics include the role of dress and dance in the lifeways of Indians, the need to reconstitute traditional social structures, how the imposition of European culture disempowered Native American women, and the need to repair cultural communication between Native Americans of the east and the west of the Mississippi."
