“I have not contended for Democrat, Republican, Protestant or Baptist for an agent; I have worked for freedom. I have labored to give my race a voice in the affairs of the nation.” -Sarah (Thocmentony) Winnemucca Hopkins, 1885
Indigenous Peoples Day honors Native American peoples and commemorates their histories and cultures. I respectfully acknowledge that the Ask a Suffragist book series was written in the ancestral lands of the Paiute, Goshute, Ute and Shoshone peoples.
Sarah Winnemucca was a Paiute who was crucial to a rescue of her people during the Bannock War. After her people were forcibly removed from their homes by the United States government, she lobbied for their right to return to their homeland.
Sarah is featured in the upcoming Ask a Suffragist book, Stories and Wisdom from Activists Who Built a Movement.The first book in the Ask a Suffragist series, America’s First Feminists, is available now. Get it today!
