Mankiller promotes new book of indigenous women

Wilma Mankiller, the first woman elected as chief of the Cherokee Nation, is promoting a new book on indigenous women.

For "Every Day is a Good Day: Reflections by Contemporary Indigenous Women," Mankiller compiled the thoughts of 19 Native women on variety of subjects. Among those featured are the Carrie and Mary Dann, the Western Shoshone sisters fighting for their land, and Sarah James, a Gwi'chin woman who opposes development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Mankiller will be in Kansas all week on her book tour. She spoke at Washburn University last night and will be at Marvin Auditorium at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library tonight.
