Paul Chaat Smith on CNN: Wilma Mankiller's trail of triumph
Paul Chaat Smith, author of Everything You Know about Indians Is Wrong, has written a powerful commentary for CNN on the life of Wilma Mankiller, who passed away this week and whose amazing life has made a new future possible for American Indians.
Read about Wilma Mankiller's (as Smith says, who can forget a name like that?) early life, how she was inspired by the '69 Alcatraz occupation, and the challenges this tough-as-nails woman was forced to endure at CNN.com.
