Without a Whisper

Through the unlikely friendship of two women, Dr. Sally Roesh Wagner and Mohawk Clan Mother Louise Wakrakatste Herne, we examine the hidden history of the profound influence of Haudenosaunee women on the beginning of the women’s rights movement in the United States in the early 1800s.

European colonial women lacked even the basic rights, while Haudenosaunee women had authority in all aspects of their life. The intersection of the early suffragists had with Haudenosaunee women had profound effects that are taken for granted today.  In these turbulent times we live in the wisdom of Native women is being called on once again.
