Description - Night Flying Woman by Ignatia Broker

Keeping life in balance was a major challenge for Minnesota's Ojibway people in the nineteenth century. White settlers overran their lands and did all they could to 'civilise' the Ojibway -- to make them forget their history and traditions. With the art of a practiced storyteller, Ignatia Broker recounts the life of her great-grandmother, Ni-bo-we-se-gew -- Night Flying Woman, or Oona, as she was called -- who lived during this chaotic time. Although her family was removed to White Earth Reservation, Oona continued to absorb 'the old ways' while being forced to learn the new. This is a story of enormous change, of uprootings, and of loss. But it also tells of great strength and continuity. Ignita Broker, who died in 1987, was a storyteller and teacher in the Ojibway tradition. In 1984 she received a Wonder Woman Foundation award honouring her as a woman striving for peace and equality.
