(1844 - 1891)

The Northern Paiute name Thocmetony (Shell-flower) was bestowed on this valiant daughter of Chief Winnemucca, and grandchild of the redoubtable Captain Truckee — a friend and supporter of General John C. Fremont. Sarah sought understanding between her people and whites when the latter trekked across and settled on Indian homelands. By lecturing, by writing a book (presumably the first in English by an Indian woman), and by founding a non-government school for Indian children, she worked tirelessly to remedy injustice and to advocate peace. Here at Fort McDermitt as interpreter and teacher she served well both Indians and U.S. Military. This exceptional Indian woman, a leader of her race, believed in the brotherhood of mankind.
