For PWNA, National Student Athlete Day reminds us of the importance of sports in Indian Country and the Native American athletes and professional teams who support Native causes.
Billy Mills, Jim Thorpe, “Chief” Bender, “Tarzan” Brown, “Injun Joe” Kapp and modern day Native American legends in pro sports: Jacoby Ellsbury, Shane Vitorino, Kyle Lohse, Joba Chamberlain and Sam Bradford. The legacy lives on.
Olympic gold medal winner Jim Thorpe was a great athlete from the Sac and Fox Nation.
Significant contributions of Native Americans to western culture.
