Linda Grover: Students explore contributions of Indian women
Posted: Wednesday, May 16, 2012
"As I write this, it is almost the end of spring semester at the University of Minnesota Duluth. This time of year is always very busy for college students, who know that in a short time their class performances will be graded and become part of their academic record.
Like the students in many other classes, those in the American Indian Women class are studying for their final examinations and working hard on their research projects. They have read textbooks, biographies, creative literature and journal articles; they have watched films, listened to music, journeyed through Internet searches, and have shared and discussed their findings extensively in class. And they have examined the very complicated concept of indigenous feminism and its application in the past, in tribal tradition, and in contemporary life."
