The Zuni man-woman

by Will Roscoe

Paper Book, 1991

Description

This work focuses on the life of We'wha (1849-96), the Zuni who was perhaps the most famous berdache (an individual who combined the work and traits of both men and women) in American Indian history. Through We'wha's exceptional life, the author creates a vivid picture of an alternative gender role whose history has been hidden and almost forgotten.
