Navajo Women

Saanii

by Betty Reid

Meet the changing women, or saanii, of the Navajo Nation. "I am a child of Changing Woman." That is a line in a Navajo prayer spoken by medicine men on behalf of patients, and in the old days it was symbolic and spiritual. Today, it is real. Navajo women, once relegated to bearing children, caring for the home, and raising livestock in a matrilineal society, have transformed themselves into businesswomen, attorneys, truck drivers, pilots, nurses, artists, presidential candidates, and more. Who is the Navajo woman and what drives her in 2007? Join Navajo writer Betty Reid and photographer Kenji Kawano on a journey through the cycle of a Navajo woman's life, from east (birth and youth) to south (teenager and young adult) to west (adult) to north (elder). 50 color & b/w photos.

80 pp ~ illustrated 2007
