Maria Tallchief loved to dance, but was told that she might need to change her Osage name to one that sounded more Russian to make it as a professional ballerina. She refused, and worked hard at dancing her best, becoming America's first prima ballerina. Many famous American ballets were created for Maria!

In this chapter book biography by award-winning author Christine Day, readers learn about the amazing life of Maria Tallchief—and how she persisted. Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton!
