Native American Women Athletes

They were a people who built 500 nations on the North American continent, before European arrival. The American Indians were the first settlers to tame the land that would be known as the United States of America. The arrival of Christopher  Columbus to Hispaniola signaled the destruction of Amerindian civilization. From 1492 to 1890 the peoples of  the Americas and the Caribbean experienced genocide, forced removal, and the decimation of their culture. Yet, they persevered.  Native American women have been ignored in sports. This is a photo collection of their contributions and accomplishments.
