“If these two women had not survived, and had the brave hearts that they do, I might not have been here.”

Dr. Henrietta Mann relates Cheyenne history through her family, including her two great grandmothers who survived the massacres at Sand Creek and along the Washita River. Through this intimate telling of history, we gain an understanding of lived experiences that created the strong woman that Henrietta is today. Dr. Mann describes the “four stops in life” that we make, reflecting on her personal experiences through these stages and where she is now as an Elder.
