How are Native women defined? How has this sense of identity been influenced by European culture, and how have negative images been resisted? These are only a few of the questions Cree/Metis writer Kim Anderson addresses in this important book based on interviews with forty Native women from across Canada. Starting from the role of women in Indigenous societies prior to the arrival of Europeans, Anderson explores how female identity and power were systematically dismantled through colonization. Drawing on their own experiences, Native women describe how they are reclaiming their cultural traditions, and creating positive and powerful images of themselves which are true to their heritage. A Recognition of Being is a critical and inspiring history of Native womanhood. Features: based on interviews with forty Aboriginal women from across Canada and the author's own personal journey as a Native woman explores the central question of how Aboriginal women maintain power and construct a positive knowledge of the self contributes to a growing body of scholarship on Indigenous women's resistance to oppression

'The word has the power to become incarnate without Mary. Why then did God incorporate Mary into the economy of our salvation to become the Mother of the Incarnate Word? If God out of love cannot but incarnate himself through Mary for our salvation, what does this suggest for all the graces that come to us through Jesus Christ, our sole Mediator? Is the incarnation of the Word and the Divine Motherhood of Mary and their unfathomable humility not a challenge to the pomposity of any social, political and religious status? Pride being fed by hatred has blinded many humans not to see the incomprehensible love of God and the dignity of human person made manifest in the incarnation of the Word and in particular the dignity of womanhood restored and revealed in Mary. What has love to do with all these?' Reconstructing the story of the Virgin Mary's life through passages in Scripture, poetry, prayers and inspirational narrative, Anthony Mary Mofunanya addresses her often undervalued importance in God's incarnation and redemption of Man. As the woman chosen by God to be the mother of his son, Mary not only raised Jesus for thirty years before he began his ministry, but was also his comfort and refuge during the turbulent three years before his death and resurrection. Most importantly, Mary was the new Eve, immaculately conceived to atone for Adam and Eve's fall from grace in the Garden of Eden, and predestined to be 'the masterpiece of God's creation' and the vessel for Man's salvation.

Breaking the Glass Box includes spiritual formation process for liberation from gender oppression through multiple awareness practices of conflicts in han-based Korean culture of society and church. The metaphor has multiple liberation process: invisible glass box, visible glass box, breaking the glass box, and sticky rice. This liberation process includes consicentization, consciousness-raising, and a heightened cultural awareness in discerning the reasons of interpersonal conflicts in Korean socio-cultural contexts. By exploring the multi-faceted han-jeong dynamics with Feminist theology and Asian Feminism, the important aspects of re-imaging the self and God as spiritual formation have been examined with contemplative practices of Internal Family System (IFS) and self-compassion to create the healthy jeong-filled solidarity group. The sticky rice is a new cultural paradigm for Korean women's jeong-filled hospitality. The broken pieces of the glass box will be transformed into the grains of rice by the positive jeong-filled hospitality of cooking sticky rice. In the solidarity group of jeong-filled hospitality, represented by rice ready to cook a serving of delicious sticky rice, people can enjoy the fellowship of healing, forgiving, and reconciling of the sticky rice. These images are intended to promote a healthy community of ministry and spirituality for Korean women.
