  1. Thank you so much for sharing Wilma’s quote and photo. She is the first female chief of the Cherokees and did a stand up job of giving back pride to a people who had been treated terribly. My mom has the best stories about her as she knew her when I was a baby. Wilma is a great role model for everyone to learn about.
