Sacajawea and Her Sisters: Images and Native Women.
Valaskakis, Gail Guthrie
Canadian Journal of Native Education, v23 n1 p117-35 1999
Historicized images of First Nations women ("princesses" and "squaws") and related narratives are deeply entrenched in North American popular culture. These appropriated, commodified representations circulate in the politics of difference and influence the identities of Native women. But their mothers' and grandmothers' narratives of Aboriginal experience help Native women to situate and reappropriate the past and empower their own futures. Contains 52 references. (Author/SV)
