Ignatia Broker tells the story of the forest people, the Ojibway, in 'Night Flying Woman, An Ojibway Narrative.' Broker tells how the white man's ways desecrated the rituals, laws and beliefs of the Native People, nearly erasing their long culture. Classed as caricatures in a land that once honored them, Broker's book hows how the Native People 'faced bias, prejudice and active discrimination.' The Ojibway philosophy for living, that of keeping in balance the purity of man and nature, sees revival through Broker's telling of Oona's story, the story of the many, seen through the 'eyes cast down' of one. An insightful story that continues the Ojibway circle of life. 'Night Flying Woman' gives us all the hope of the past for the future.

Night Flying woman is story in the tradition of the Ojibway people in Minnesota. It is also the story of cultural contact that drastically altered an ancient way of life.
