How about bringing your students and friends to the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame to learn about the pioneering spirit of the women of the American West?
Your school group will learn about the Museum’s 190 Honorees, including stories of rodeo champions, entertainers, artists, photographers, writers, trailblazers, and even an architect. The Museum also features women who made an impact in our Western heritage…women of the west, past and present. While some names are more familiar such as Clara Brown, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Georgia O’Keeffe, Annie Oakley, and Dale Evans, there are others who also align with the idea of the “cowgirl” such as Sallie Reynolds Matthews, Narcissa Whitman, Esther Hobart Morris and Mother Joseph Pariseau. Each played a role in creating and shaping the West, and not all were on horseback. Some were applauded for their efforts; others were criticized and considered too progressive. Many chose their path, many had the path chosen for them; yet all prevailed and left their place in history. And, you can be sure that one connection between them all is that they all have a story – a story that you can learn about at the Museum.
