This week, we introduce the work of Zitkala-Sa, a Dakota Sioux activist, author, and musician born in 1876. We’ll be reading an excerpt from American Indian Stories, in which she recounts her experiences at a missionary school in the 1880s. You can read that here: The School Days of an Indian Girl.
