Pueblo Book Club: Engendered Encounters
02:00 pm - 04:00 pm MST
This month’s book is Engendered Encounters: Feminism and Pueblo Cultures, 1879-1934. In this interdisciplinary study of gender, cross-cultural encounters, and federal Indian policy, Margaret D. Jacobs explores the changing relationship between Anglo-American women and Pueblo Indians before and after the turn of the century. During the late nineteenth century, the Pueblos were often characterized by women reformers as barbaric and needing to be “uplifted” into civilization. By the 1920s, however, the Pueblos were widely admired by activist Anglo-American women, who challenged assimilation policies and worked hard to protect the Pueblos’ “traditional” way of life.
