Meet the first Native American woman in the U.S. Marine Corps

 


HELENA - More than 70 years ago, Minnie Spotted Wolf of Montana broke through both social, gender, and ethnic barriers by becoming the first Native American woman to join the U.S. Marine Corps.

The story of a member of the Blackfeet Nation from the Heart Butte area who made Marine Corps history in World War II was even told at the time in comic book form.

"You can find history just about anywhere,” said Montana Historical Society reference historian Zoe Ann Stoltz. “A good story is a good story.”
