The book highlights Ojibwe women as agents of social change in their communities in both historic times- maintaining tradition as European settlers and eventually the U.S. government tried to "civilize" and "Americanize" the Ojibwe; and in contemporary times- as promoters of tolerance, multiculturalism, and strong families even while living in urban areas.
