Remembering Wilma Mankiller

Having received the sad news today on the passing of Wilma Mankiller, we would like to pay tribute by remembering her visit to the Research Library on October 2004 (pictured left), when she participated in our Native Authors Series. She is shown here in our reading room signing copies of her book Every Day is a Good Day: Reflections of Contemporary Indigenous Women.

Mankiller was the former principal chief of the Cherokee Tribe of Oklahoma and a driving force for Native American causes and culture throughout Indian Country. Below is a brief bibliography of resources by and about this remarkable woman.
