Remembering Chief Wilma Mankiller: The 'Fresh Air' Interview

Many Oklahomans were saddened yesterday to hear of the death of Wilma Mankiller, former chief of the Cherokee Nation and a well-known Native American activist and leader.

The NPR program Fresh Air today released a 12-minute interview with Mankiller from its archives. It's a fitting tribute, a review of Mankiller's life and interests in her own words.

Terry Gross, the host and interviewer, is excellent as always. The link is here.
