Collaborating with distinguished ethno-historian, Patsy West, Betty Mae Jumper recounts her inspiring autobiography. Her profound influence on the Seminole tribe is recognized even to this day, as she remains one of the most decorated members of the Seminole tribe, contributing to Seminole literature, politics, women's history, Native American history, and Florida history.
Serving as tribal chair of the Florida Seminoles from 1967 to 1971, Betty Mae Jumper is the only Florida Seminole woman ever so elected.
