Sarah Winnemucca was a woman from the future.

An intelligent and respected translator-negotiator; she gained fame and amazing recognition during her short forty-seven year lifetime. Sarah came to be considered a powerful Native American rights activist. She traveled extensively, lecturing on behalf of her People. Passionate about education, she established a school for Native American children in Nevada.

The next time you find yourself in the town of Winnemucca, Nevada…take a moment to remember this petite but powerful woman.

I have driven through Winnemucca a dozen times over the last twenty years and never heard of this amazing woman. Thanks for introducing her.
