Inspiring Native American Women Athletes

In his play, The Moon in Two Windows, Kiowa author N.Scott Momaday, celebrates the accomplishments of Jim Thorpe who is an Olympic Gold Medalist from the Sac and Fox Tribe; however, no female athlete has been celebrated in this semester’s literature class. This CURCA presentation gives credit to Native American female athletes whose accomplishments in professional and Olympic sports deserve more recognition because they can inspire the future generation of athletes.
