Summary
"The first book-length history of reproduction that centers [on] Native American women, Reproduction on the reservation documents the transformation of reproductive practices on Indian reservations from the late nineteenth century to the early twenty-first. Relying on extensive archival research as well as oral histories that allow Native women to tell their own stories, this study integrates a local history of childbearing, motherhood, and activism on the Crow Reservation in Montana with an analysis of trends affecting women throughout Indian country. Historian Brianna Theobald uses the lens of reproductive justice to demonstrate the extent to which colonial politics have been--and remain--reproductive politics. In the process, she offers compelling new analyses of topics ranging from pronatalism to eugenics to relocation. At the heart of this history are the Native women who displayed creativity and fortitude in navigating pregnancy and childbirth in evolving historical contexts and who struggled for reproductive self-determination on--and sometimes off--reservations throughout the twentieth century"--
