In these compelling, multi-generational oral histories collected by Kathy Eckles Hooker, women talk about their experiences in their own words. As they do, their faces are captured in defining portraits by photographer David Young-Wolff, whose evocative portraits demonstrate the insights gleaned from his 45-year career as one of America’s top producers of stock and portrait photography.
Along with the women’s stories are informative chapters about Navajo history and culture, including the coming-of-age ceremony (kinaaldá), Changing Woman, the Long Walk, education, and the importance of sheep to Navajo lifeways.
For anyone who wants to understand the lives of Native American women today, especially the lives of Navajo women, this book opens the door. Buy yours today!
