More Info:

Native American Indian women have been the foundation and spirit of their culture for centuries. Their role in the tribal communities not only assumed the more conventional matriarchal responsibilities within the tribe but also spearheaded the collection of materials and construction of homes for all members, an incredible feat especially given their era. The men revered these women as sources of life and fortitude, providing them with a sense of balance and harmony in their lives. In this program, we explore the lives, challenges, successes and accomplishments of several awe-inspiring Native American women from past and present times. These include the legendary Ponochantas, the revolutionary singer-songwriter and Academy Award winner, Buffy Sainte-Marie, as well as Deb Haaland - who etched her name in history by becoming the first Native American woman to hold office as US Secretary of Interior in 2021. Furthermore, we will shed light on numerous other powerful and influential Native American women who have left an indelible mark upon society. Featuring: Susan LaFlesche Picotte (First Female American Indian Doctor), Lozen (Native Warrior), Pocahontas (Historic Native Personality), Deb Haaland (Congresswoman), Sharice Davids (Congresswoman), Buffy Sainte-Marie (Activist Musician, Composer, Academy Award Winner), Wilma Pearl Mankiller (First Female Indian Tribal Council Chief), Joy Harjo (US Poet Laureate), Quannah Chasinghorse Potts (Fashion Model), Nicole Mann (NASA Astronaut), Ashley Callingbull (Miss Universe), Deb Haaland (US Secretary of the Interior), Eloise P. Cobell (Activist), Matika Wilbur (Photographer/Author).
