Debra S. Yates has written a beautiful portrait of her seventh-great-grandmother and a key figure in the history of the Cherokee Nation. Woman of Many Names chronicles Nancy Ward aka Nanyehi, whose immortalization in books, historical sites and stage productions continues to this very day. Debra's book should be mandatory reading in all history classrooms across the United States and every child should be more familiar with the strength and majesty of Nancy Ward. During this podcast episode, Nancy discusses digging deep into family history with researching about the legend of Nanyehi and sharing the importance of Native American history to future generations.
