As I’ve mentioned, you can’t explore America’s history without discovering the vital roles women played.. So with the help of this Hello Giggles piece, I urge you to go learn about eight influential indigenous American women. Here’s just a few:
- Elizabeth Wanamaker Peratrovich helped past America’s first anti-discrimination law in 1945
- Susan La Flesche Picotte first Native American woman to earn a medical degree
- Lyda Conley Wyandot one of the first female Native American attorneys, and the first to “argue that Native burial grounds are entitled to federal protection.” Sound familiar?
