"Zitkala-Ša’s writing shows her persistence to survive, the importance of preserving our heritage." - Jane Hafen, Zitkala-Sa Scholar
The UNLADYLIKE2020 team hosted two events in partnership with our local partner Better Days 2020, supported by a fellowship award from the Utah Humanities Council, at the Salt Lake City Public Library and the Uintah County Library.
In addition to presenting our research and screening our first episode, we hosted two panels on Zitkala-Sa and Martha Hughes Cannon, two accomplished Utah women, and heard from scholar Jane Hafen, senator Holly Richardson, Better Days 2020 Neylan McBaine, Ute beadworker Cheryl Lone Bear, first female Vernal mayor Sonja Norton, and our series Charlotte Mangin. Kristine Curry, whose great grandfather was adopted by Zitkala-Sa after his own mother died, was also in attendance.
