Summary, etc.: Her book, Thunder in my Soul, contains the reflections of a Mohawk woman and her struggles to find a good place to be in Canadian society. The essays, written in enjoyable and accessible language, document the struggles against oppression that Aboriginal people face, as well as the success and change that have come to Aboriginal communities. It is written from a woman's place. This book is a Canadian first. Although many other volumes of collected papers on Aboriginal issues have appeared in the last decade, no other Canadian text contains the works of one Aboriginal academic. This book has many possibilities. It could be used as a text in a variety of courses in the disciplines of women's studies, Native studies, sociology, education, politics and law. These essays are written in an enjoyable and accessible language. It is an excellent book for anyone who wishes to better understand the Aboriginal experience. It speaks to both the mind and the heart.
