De Coteau, Clara
Clara De Coteau, a Chippewa woman who was born in 1909, wrote the story of her first 18 years of life for this unit. In the story, Mrs. De Coteau tells of many experiences which girls can relate to their life today. While some things have changed, other things have not. Mrs. De Coteau illustrates very well the patience, time and effort it takes to excel in something. Her frequent reference to her music is a good example of this. In her story, she often relates to her extended family. A discussion of this relationship should help the girls understand their family system. There is a list of questions that can be used to help the girls discuss the story. As a follow-up to the story, girls may talk to other women about their growing up years. The unit consists of the booklet,"Growing Up To Be A Woman," which is for all age groups. (Author/CM)
