Summary
"Rachel's Children is the engaging and humorous true story of a contemporary Ojibwa woman and her children. The narrative begins as a white educator arrives in Rachel's household to learn about "Indians" and discovers instead the harsh reality of backwoods life. As the lives of Rachel and her family unfold, we understand how traditional beliefs and oral history help Rachel and her family cope as they encounter racism and educational discrimination in rural northern Michigan. Lois Beardslee writes in an unexpected combination of ethnography, theatrical script, and novel, echoing the Ojibwa style of storytelling. Her absorbing story about the survival of a Native American family encourages a greater understanding of cultural diversity and will be valuable for instructors in Native studies, multicultural education, women's studies, and anthropology"--Back cover
