“Making Space for Indigenous Feminism”

Post to Twitter

I stumbled upon  Making Space for Indigenous Feminism, a  2007 book edited by Professor Joyce Green (Political Science, University of Regina).  It is a collection of essays  by Indigenous women from Canada, the USA, Sapmi (Samiland), and Aotearoa/New Zealand.

In a review published at 24 N0. 1 Can. J.L. & Soc’y 134 (2009), Jennifer Koshan (Calgary) says this about the book:

Overall, Making Space for Indigenous Feminism is a ground-breaking book for its authors’ efforts to collectively engage with and contribute to feminist theory and practice. There will no doubt continue to be debates about the relevance and utility of feminism for Indigenous women pursuing legal strategies. By informing that debate, Making Space for Indigenous Feminism makes major headway in explaining the intersections between feminist and Indigenous theories and practices, and the contributors have carved out a unique space for Indigenous feminism(s) in doing so.
