Zitkala-Ša or 'Red bird' (1876–1938), was also known by the missionary-given name Gertrude Simmons Bonnin. The child of a full-blood Yankton Sioux, she was born in 1876 on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and raised in a tipi on the Missouri River until age 12. She went to a Quaker missionary school for Indians, eventually becoming a teacher, musician, author and activist.
Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. Ancient Indian Proverb
