Sun Dance Operah

Saw the note on Google commemorating Zitkala-Sa today, anyone here know more to her story? Was it LDS missionaries who took her and cut her hair off?

I just read that article yesterday after Zitkala-Sa was featured on the Google doodle. She worked as a teacher at a Utah Amerindian Reservation school. I don't think she was ever captured by Mormon missionaries during their raiding parties.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

She married William Hanson, a music professor at Brigham Young University, spent time in Utah, seems like she would have crossed the church at some point. Thanks!

I pretty sure she was married to Raymond Bonnin.

She worked with William Hanson, but was never married to him.
