Native American women have inspired many people, regardless of cultural identity, from the earliest contact with non-native people to the 21st century. The colorful and varied customs of indigenous women has resulted in contributions that benefitted their immediate and extended communities. The presentation will celebrate the lives and legacy of members from various tribal affiliations -- amazing individuals who were explorers, doctors, social reformers and advocates.
