Quote of the Day - Wilma Mankiller

Wilma Mankiller (November 18, 1945 – April 6, 2010), was the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation, serving from 1985 to 1995. When she accepted the position, she was one of only a few women in tribal leadership. During her time as chief, she worked to reintroduce traditional Cherokee systems where women and men worked together for the betterment of the tribe.

She also worked diligently to improve relations between the Cherokee Nation and the United States federal government, and using federal funds to create long-lasting community development projects to encourage tribal businesses, promote economic independence, and improve infrastructure.

"The most fulfilled people are the ones who get up every morning and stand for something larger than themselves. They are the people who care about others, who will extend a helping hand to someone in need or will speak up about an injustice when they see it."
Who will you help today? What will you fight for?
