Betty Mae Tiger Jumper was an incredible woman. She was one of two women appointed by U.S. President Richard Nixon to the National Congress on Indian Opportunity and inducted into the Florida Women's Hall of Fame. Florida State University conferred on her an honorary doctorate of humane letters degree for her many years of commitment to improving the education, health, cultural and economic conditions of her people. Yet she was a humble person whose faith came first in all she did.
