Example text

We can’t overrun her. Europeans are always running away. We didn’t have to run away. We need to love where we are. Our hope is that the coming generations can do the same. They must protect the land. My father knew that I would do this work and that it would not be easy. He said he couldn’t get into the ring with me, but he would stand on the sidelines and cheer. That’s where he is now. The dead are not powerless. They are powerful. Pauline’s book Rights Remembered offers a sensitive perspective on how we can acknowledge and begin to reverse generations of abuse and thoughtlessness against indigenous peoples and the ecological fabric of life on earth.

Pauline needed a change. She divorced her first husband and in the 1960s moved to Seattle to work as a secretary for Boeing in an electrical engineering department. Then she got a position at the University of Washington as a level-three secretary in the Personnel Department. It was here that she met Erna Gunther, who was professor and chair of anthropology and director of the Burke Museum at the University of Washington. Professor Gunther encouraged her to write a book. ”10 Professor Gunther saw its value and wanted Pauline to expand it into a book, but Professor Gunther also criticized it, saying that each section should be a chapter.
