Daniel H. Usner

Weaving Alliances With Other Women

Chitimacha Indian Work in the New South

€ 30.99


`Friendships that Christine Paul (1874-1946) sustained with Mary Bradford (1869-1954) and Caroline Dormon (1888-1971) at different times in her life offer an all too scarce vantage point from which Daniel Usner explores the condition of American Indians in the Jim Crow South. `Aspects that, for the most part, have not been addressed in historical works` according to Devon Mihesuah, `are the feelings and emotions of Native women, the relationships among them, and their observations of non-Natives.` In Weaving Alliances with Other Women, Usner hopes to overcome this neglect for one Indigenous community in the southern United States. In Christine Paul`s respective exchanges of information and insight with two non-Indian women, thanks to the survival of her invaluable correspondence with Bradford and Dormon, Usner attempts to ascertain what Rebecca Sharpless called a `bivocal representation` of relationships fraught with important social, economic, and cultural tensions. Interacting closely within a social web largely woven with woven objects, the identities of these three women nonetheless developed along very separate paths--paths mapped-out by their unequal positions in the New South`--Provided by publisher
