OwanahAnderson.ChoctawLaywoman

Owanah Anderson has died, the former Native American missioner for the national Episcopal Church and a Choctaw wise woman. In her retirement she served the loyalist Diocese of Fort Worth against the claims of a former bishop who objected to liberalizing trends – and tried to take church property with him. The loyalist church was devastated, but they have reconstituted and largely won their legal rights. (Episcopal Café)
