These Women Built Montana
And they’re all in the book we just began reading last week up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby. I’ll be there again at 6 tonight (Tuesday) to soldier on with the book, “Beyond Schoolmarms and Madams,” from the Montana Historical Society down in Helena. Last week, we read about some Native American women warriors could have broken “ME” in half! The women featured in the book range from 19th century indigenous women warriors to 21st century Blackfeet banker Elouise Cobell. They span geography from the western Montana women who worked for the U.S. Forest Service to Miles City doctor Sadie Lindeberg. & they span ideology from the members of the Montana Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs to the women of the Ku Klux Klan! See you this evening for more Montana History at the Heritage.
