March is Women’s History Month, and the National Women’s History Project is honoring Chipeta ("White Singing Bird" in the Ute language) as a woman of “Character, Courage and Commitment.” Born into the Kiowa Apache tribe in the 1840s, Chipeta was raised by the Uncompahgre Ute tribe in what is now western Colorado. She was an advisor to her husband, the powerful Chief Ouray, and sought to mediate between Native Americans and whites because she believed war would devastate her people.
