If you have a chance this week, drop by the museum to see the banner exhibit "Tales of Endurance and Change: Native American Lives a Century Ago," featuring images from the Wanamaker Collection. One photograph in the exhibit is particularly appealing, that of Annie Dodge (below--the photograph was taken in July 1913, at Ganado, Navajo Reservation, Arizona). It's a beautiful photo, but more importantly, it's a photo of child who grew up to be a major activist for Native Americans and for public health issues. Annie Dodge Wauneka (her married name) led many fights for better reservation conditions and for the eradication of tuberculosis, and for her efforts she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1963.
