Restoring the Balance combines elements of First Nations traditions and mainstream feminism to produce an outstanding collection of historical and critical accounts of the impacts Aboriginal women have had in the areas of law, politics, education, community healing, language, art, and cultural retention. Fifteen scholars, activists and community leaders illuminate long-standing gender imbalances within the oral and written historical records that have limited the self-actualization of First Nations women, and offer insight into the tangible work that Aboriginal women perform in community and cultural development.
