This work deals specifically with the oftentimes
overlooked woman-figure in contemporary American Indian
literature. By linking the female characters on N. Scott
Momaday’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel House
Made of Dawn and his most recent book The
Ancient Child, Leslie M. Silko’s Ceremony,
and Paula Gunn Allen’s The Woman Who Owned the
Shadows to creator-goddesses of the Navajo and Pueblo
origin myths, this book both uncovers the significance of
the novels‘ female aspects and adds another dimension to the
role and function of the male characters.
