She Persisted: Maria Tallchief

Maria Tallchief loved to dance, but was told that she might need to change her Osage name to one that sounded more Russian to make it as a professional ballerina. She refused, and worked hard at dancing her best, becoming America's first prima ballerina. Many famous American ballets were created just for Maria! Her influence on American dance is still strong to this day.

Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book that teaches young readers all about Tallchief's love of dance and her determination to stay true to her Osage roots. With text by acclaimed Upper Skagit author Christine Day and black and white illustrations throughout by Gillian Flint, this is an empowering story that celebrates individuality, perseverance, and a love of dance.
