Rebel Shamans: Women Confront Empire

Rebel Shamans: Women Confront Empire
A webcast with Max Dashu
Saturday, July 8, 12:00-2:00PM

Priestesses, diviners and medicine women who led aboriginal liberation movements against conquest, empire, and colonization, especially in Indigenous American and African societies.

Max Dashu founded the Suppressed Histories Archives in 1970 to research and document women's history from an international perspective. She built a collection of 15,000 slides and 30,000 digital images, and has created 150 slideshows on female cultural heritages across human history. Dashu's work bridges the gap between academia and grassroots education. It foregrounds indigenous women passed over by standard histories and highlights female spheres of power retained even in some patriarchal societies.
