Description

Written by Christine Day who is Upper Skagit, and Chelsea Clinton. Illustrated by Alexandra Boiger and Gillian Flint.

In this chapter book biography by award-winning author Christine Day, readers learn about the amazing life of Maria Tallchief—and how she persisted.

Maria Tallchief loved to dance, but was told that she might need to change her Osage name to one that sounded more Russian to make it as a professional ballerina. She refused, and worked hard at dancing her best, becoming America’s first prima ballerina. Many famous American ballets were created for Maria!

Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton, black-and-white illustrations throughout, and a list of ways that readers can follow in Maria Tallchief’s footsteps and make a difference!
