Mankiller

Young Wilma in San Francisco

Clip | 2m 22s

As a child, Wilma Mankiller’s family was relocated from Oklahoma to San Francisco, and although the move was traumatic, it was in the Bay Area during the turbulent 1960s that she became involved in the movements for civil, human and women’s rights. This time in her life is significant because she brought this passion back to Oklahoma and the Cherokee Nation.
