Dr. Hookimaw-Witt challenges the conventionally held misunderstanding that Aboriginal women are less powerful, or important, within Indigenous societies than are men. To make her case, Dr. Hookimaw-Witt examines the Zapotec people of Mexico and the Cree people of Attawapiskat Ontario, Canada in order to argue, and convincingly so, for a balanced understanding of gender roles and responsibility rather than adhering to polar positions exemplified by the male vs. female power struggle epitomized within Western culture.

From such a stance, Dr. Hookimaw-Witt rejects dominant culture’s feminist theories as she argues that there adoption “would mean that we again accept domination… suggesting that we fix our society according to their theories” (p. 12). Dr. Hookimaw-Witt asserts that Aboriginal feminism must be about restoring balance and ending domination.
