Reviews

"Rosalyn LaPier guides us through the meanings the Blackfeet community has attached to the plants and natural phenomena that surround them and at the same time makes clear the boundless complexity and stunning beauty of this indigenous cultural tradition."-Frederick E. Hoxie, Swanlund Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and editor of The Oxford Handbook of American Indian History
-- Frederick E. Hoxie
"This is an important, accomplished, creative, [and] imaginative history that zings with original insights."-Sarah Carter, professor and the Henry Marshall Tory Chair of the Department of History and Classics at the University of Alberta and editor of Montana Women Homesteaders: A Field of One's Own
-- Sarah Carter
"An important book that tackles some interesting philosophical issues in epistemology and ontology from a Native American perspective, [Invisible Reality] does so with a critical eye regarding change under colonization and modernity."-Patricia Albers, professor of American Indian studies and anthropology at the University of Minnesota and coauthor of The Hidden Half: Studies of Plains Indian Women -- Patricia Albers
