In the Land of the Grasshopper Song: Two Women in the Klamath River Indian Country in 1908-09

from 17.95

By Mary E. Arnold & Mabel Reed. The story of two white women who are part of a government project to instruct Indian women in their "proper duties" as women. "Grasshopper Song not only gleefully subverts the era's expectations for white women, but as a reverse acculturation narrative, it holds up Karuk values as vastly superior to the ones the two women were paid to disseminate." - Susan Bernardin, in the Introduction.
