Utah’s original settlers have had a long struggle for equal rights before the law in the United States. Host Dianna Douglas introduces some of the Utah women who led the charge. Zitkála-Šá was an early pioneer for voting rights and civil rights for native peoples, helping European Americans acknowledge the beauty and richness of native peoples’ cultures through essays, speeches and even an original opera. Mae Timbimboo Parry helped Utah confront a dark history of mistreatment of native peoples, all with her disarming mix of humor and kindness. And we meet native women of Utah who are continuing the work today.
