Montana’s Minnie Spotted Wolf
We'll be reading about Montanan Minnie Spotted Wolf tonight (Tuesday) during Montana History at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby. She was the woman who broke the barriers of both race & gender when she enlisted in the Marine Corps Women's Reserve back in July of 1943. Ms. Minnie was a member of the Blackfeet tribe & grew up on a ranch near Heart Butte. It's another fascinating TRUE TALE in our current book, "Beyond Schoolmarms and Madams: Montana Women's Stories" excellently put together & published by the Montana Historical Society down in Helena. Schoolmarms, madams, & lady switchboard operators at Many Glacier Hotel...they're ALL here in the book & it's turning out to be one FANTASTIC read. See you this evening at 6 for more Montana History at the Heritage!
