Oldest Washoe Tribe member remembered as strong

Family and friends gathered on Monday to remember Winona Kyser James, the oldest member of the Washoe Tribe who died last week at the age of 102.

James was recalled as strong-willed, feisty and courageous. �She was a very important individual who represented Washoe womanhood for generations to look up to. She will live with us forever,� Chairman Brian Wallace was quoted as saying.

James was an avid lover of horses and rodeos. She was friendly and warm to everyone, family and friends said.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to the Indian Exhibit at the Carson Valley Museum and Culture Center, 1477 U.S. 395 North, Gardnerville, NV 89410.
