What This Awl Means: Feminist Archaeology at a Wahpeton Dakota Village

Spector, Janet D
This book highlights the activities and experiences of Dakota women at Little Rapids, a nineteenth-century Eastern Sioux planting village along the lower Minnesota River near Minneapolis. The author uses an individual artifact from the site, a carved antler awl handle, to tell the larger story. Numerous drawings and photographs illustrate the text, listing of artifacts and animal and plant remains are appended, and a source list is provided.
