The Sacred Hoop: Recovering the Feminine in American Indian Traditions

'“[The Sacred Hoop] may make you more hopeful and more realistic about our possibilities.” —Gloria Steinem “Provocative and illuminating.” —San Francisco Chronicle “In these beautifully written essays, Paula Gunn Allen . . . makes a vital contribution to American Indian and feminist scholarship. . . . Allen brings to vivid life America’s powerful female roots.” —Booklist “A landmark collection which may prove as important to American Indian women as Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex has been for Western non-tribal women.” —New Directions for Women “Paula Gunn Allen presents her material forcefully, gracefully, and . . . quite convincingly.” —Yvone J. Millspaw, Harrisburg Community College “Allen’s life experiences as a Ph.D. in the field of Native American studies and professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and more important, as a Laguna Pueblo/Sioux woman who believes that personal and cultural truth are inseparable and vital to survival, form the bias of this book. It is precisely this bias that gives The Sacred Hoop its power and insight as a commentary on the perceptions and priorities of contemporary Native American women and as a source of information for those who continue to seek more than sociological and bureaucratic definition.” —Los Angeles Times'
