You've probably heard of Captain Jack (Keintpoos), leader of the Modocs during the Modoc War, but have you heard of his sister, Princess Mary? Her Indian name was Ko-a-lak-a, meaning hard working woman. Speaking fluent English, she served as an interpreter and negotiator during the war, often translating for her brother. Harry De Witt Moore, a soldier, mentioned Princess Mary in his letters, saying, "she has a most powerful voice." She was known to holler at the soldiers from the walls of the Stronghold. If she hadn't been born a woman, she might have been a powerful Modoc leader. Following the war, Princess Mary was one of over 150 Modocs exiled to the Quapaw Agency in Oklahoma. She died there on Feb. 26, 1906. Pictured left to right are Princess Mary, Artena Chockus, and One-eyed Dixie. #womenshistorymonth

#WomanoftheWeek Maria Pearson, Hai-Mecha Eunka or “Running Moccasins” (1932-2003): an American Indian #activist, a cultural #preservationist, and a #leader for the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Maria played a significant role in passing the first state law in the country that protected ancient human physical remains. A member of the Yankton Sioux tribe from South Dakota, Maria moved to Iowa where she pioneered the movement to prohibit the desecration of Native American graves. Maria met with the Governor of Iowa, Robert Ray, to question him about the discrimination and unjust practices of dealing with Native Americans and their remains. She and other Native American tribal members then met with the professional archaeologists of Iowa to explain why graves are scared and need to be protected. From there she went on to national anthropology meetings in Washington, D.C and many others to spread her message of protection and repatriation. Governor Ray invited Maria back to Des Moines to speak with the Iowa legislature and to help Senator John Murray and Representative Bill Hutchins with the bill that was to change the burial code of Iowa to better protect American Indian graves. In 1976, Iowa’s landmark legislation passed. It also incorporated the establishment of four cemeteries (North, South, East, and West) for the reburial of ancient Native American graves, which Maria promoted. These efforts contributed to the passage of the federal law known as NAGPRA in 1990. Maria was the chair of an Indian Advisory Council that was formed to assist Iowa’s OSA. And in 1990 Maria traveled to Venezuela to attend the Second World Archeological Conference as an official indigenous member of the Executive Council. The BBC produced a documentary, Bones of Contention, about Maria in 1995. She described her work as being a cultural preservation consultant, a Native American issues adviser, President of the Governor’s Interstate Indian Council, and much more. To her peers, family, and friends Maria was a #tireless warrior for #equality, a #loyal and #passionate friend, and an #outstanding #women. Thanks to Iowa Archaeology for the image of Maria.
