Publisher's Summary

This first comprehensive work on women in pre-Columbian American cultures describes gender roles and relationships in North, Central, and South America from 12,000 B.C. to the A.D. 1500s. Utilizing many key archaeological works, Karen Olsen Bruhns and Karen E. Stothert redress some of the long-standing male bias in writing about ancient Native American lifeways.

Bruhns and Stothert focus on several of the most thought-provoking areas of study in the Americas: the origins of agriculture, the development of complex societies, the evolution of religious systems, and the interpretation of art and mortuary materials. The authors pay particular attention to the problems of interpreting archaeological remains and the uses of historic and ethnographic evidence in reconstructing the past.

The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press.

    "Interesting yet Short"

    Discusses how removing women from the story of humanity causes problems in our views of our own history and gives examples in ancient American sites and societies. I thought this to be very level headed and carefully written yet a bit short.

    The narrator had a good voice, but the speed at which she was recorded was waaaay to fast, even at half speed.
