Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 189454921X, Paperback)

This collection of seventeen essays presents original and critical perspectives from writers, scholars and activists on issues that are pertinent to Aboriginal women and their communities in both rural and urban settings in Canada. Their contributions explore the critical issues facing Native women as they rebuild and revive their communities. Through topics such as the role of tradition, reclaiming identities and protecting Native children and the environment, they identify the restraints that shape their actions and the inspirations that feed their visions.

The contributors address issues of youth, health and sexual identity; women's aging, sexuality, and health; caring for children and adults living with Fetal Alchohol Syndrome; First Nations education and schooling; community-based activism on issues of prostitution and street workers; and reclaiming cultural identity through art and music.

About the Editors: Kim Anderson (Cree/Metis) is a writer and educator who works in social and health policy development as a researcher/writer for Aboriginal organizations in Ontario. Bonita Lawrence (Mi'kmaw) is Assistant Professor at Atkinson College School of Social Sciences, York University.
