She Persisted: Wilma Mankiller

Wilma Mankiller grew up with the knowledge that, as a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, her people had long suffered mistreatment at the hands of the US government. As she got older and learned more about the injustices they had faced and continued to face, she dedicated her life to helping Native Nations and their citizens reclaim their rights. She went on to become the first woman Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation.

Inspired by Chelsea Clinton's best-selling She Persisted picture book series, this chapter book is an inspiring introduction to a pioneer for Native American rights and women's leadership! Award-winning author Traci Sorell explores how her childhood experiences shaped Mankiller's life, and how she drew from her pride in her heritage when fighting for rights for her people. With black and white illustrations from Gillian Flint, and a list of ways that readers can follow in Wilma Mankiller's footsteps and make a difference, this empowering biography is perfect for young independent readers.
