 A Seminole Legend: The Life of Betty Mae Tiger Jumper

Jumper had to leave her home and family in Florida for Indian schools in North Carolina and Oklahoma in order to receive the basic education and nurse’s training she wanted. Jumper worked as a nurse, gathered the legends of her people, and served the Seminole Tribe of Florida as an activist and director of communications; from 1967 to 1971, she was the first woman elected tribal chair. A Seminole Legend blends history, legends, and Jumper’s experiences, with ethnohistorian and preservationist Patsy West supplying background and context. The story of an American life quite different from those most biographies portray.
