Shoni Schimmel to Visit "Little Cheyenne Girl" in Atlanta on 9/11


ATLANTA—Atlanta Dream shooting guard Shoni Schimmel will visit the digital projection and meet the artist of “Little Cheyenne Girl,” a new symbol for efforts to improve American Indian health through affordable insurance, after her 7:30 game on Friday, Sept 11. The painting by Native artist J. Nicole Nahmi-A-Piah (Hatfield) can be seen on the Georgia World Congress Center from 9-11:30 p.m. each night from September 9 to 12.

Schimmel, a tribal citizen of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, is endorsing the project because she supports healthy lifestyles and efforts to improve American Indian and Alaska Native health. The event after the game will also be celebrated with a performance by the Silver Ridge Singers, an American Indian drum group from Lawrenceville, GA.
