Native Feminisms & the Revitalization of Women's Coming-of-Age Ceremonies By Cutcha Risling Baldy.

This is a deeply personal account of the revitalization of the women’s coming-of-age ceremony for the Hoopa Valley Tribe. At the end of the twentieth century, the tribe’s Flower Dance had not been fully practiced for decades. The women of the tribe undertook its renewal using memories of elders and medicine women and details found in museum archives, anthropological records, and oral histories. The author is assistant professor of Native American Studies at Humboldt State University and a member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe.
