What This Awl Means: Feminist Archaeology at a Wahpeton Dakota Village, Spector, Janet D.
7 Spector, Janet D. What This Awl Means: Feminist Archaeology at a Wahpeton Dakota Village
Minnesota Historical Society Press 1993 0843512774 hardcover used 161 pages 
Signed by the author on the title page.
From Publishers Weekly: "Frustrated by traditional approaches to interpreting archeological remains, Spector, an anthropologist at the University of Minnesota, attempts a more culturally sensitive reading of a site in Minnesota occupied by the Wahpeton (a division of the Sioux) until the 1850s. Working closely with modern descendants of those earlier inhabitants, Spector examined various tasks of daily life to try to reconstruct gender roles in the culture. In this endeavor, the awl of the title, uncovered in the dig, becomes important both for what it is able to tell us about gender roles and as a metaphor for what Spector believes should be the methodology of anthropologists. The history and daily life of the Wahpetons is imaginatively reconstructed by the author from the bits and pieces discovered in the earth. She writes with an energy and enthusiasm that make interesting what could be academic and dull."

Condition: Ex library with library markings. Pages are clean. Inside front cover has previous owners bookplate. Cover has bumped corners and soil. Printing on spine cover is faded. 
Price: 13.20 USD
