In the last few years, popular and scholarly interest in Native women has soared. In SIFTERS, the first volume in the new Viewpoints on American Culture series, Theda Perdue, a recognized Native American and women's historian, has brought together a group of scholars both junior and senior to introduce the reading public and students to the lives of Native American women through individual biographies. Ranging chronologically from colonial times to the present, geographically from New England to the Southwest, this volume includes essays on the well-known Sacajawea and Pocahantas, as well as Native women who made important contributions to American political history, social activism, and cultural achievement, and in the case of Ada Deer, continue to shape the place of Native Americans in the U.S.
