Summary
This volume counters the stereotype that Indian women are without history. Neither silent nor invisible, women of early Mexico were active participants in their societies and critically influenced the direction history would take. This collection of essays by leading scholars in Mexican ethnohistory examines the life experiences of Indian women in preconquest and colonial Mexico
