A Great Loss

Wilma Mankiller, first female chief of the Cherokee Nation, passed away yesterday due to complications from pancreatic cancer. She was 64.

"Friends describe me as someone who likes to dance along the edge of the roof. I try to encourage young women to be willing to take risks, to stand up for the things they believe in, and to step up and accept the challenge of serving in leadership roles."
