of the first Native American women to publish traditional stories
derived from oral tribal legend was Zitkala-Sa, whose real name was Gertrude Simmons. She was born at the Yankton Sioux Agency in South Dakota, from a white father and a Dakota Indian mother.
Her writing was full of imagery and emotion and frequently harangued on the white oppression of Native Americans."
