Cherokee Indian Princess

Nanye-hi (ᎾᏅᏰᎯ: "One who goes about"), known in english as Nancy
Ward (c. 1738–1822) was a ghigau, or beloved woman of the Cherokee
nation, which meant that she was allowed to sit in councils and to make
decisions, along with the other Beloved Women, on pardons.
She attempted to live in peaceful coexistence with white people.
