Rosebud Yellow Robe

Rosebud Yellow Robe (''Lacotawin'') (26 February 1907 – 5 October 1992) was a Native American folklorist, educator and author. Rosebud was influenced by her father Chauncey Yellow Robe, and used storytelling, performance and books to introduce generations of children to Native American folklore and culture. Rosebud was a public celebrity to thousands of children who visited the Indian Village at Jones Beach, New York, every summer from 1930 to 1950, and known for her beauty, enthusiasm and intelligence. From the late 1930s through the 1950s, Yellow Robe was a broadcast celebrity with the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City and appeared as a regular on NBC children's programs. In later years, Rosebud continued her storytelling and lectures at the American Museum of Natural History and the Donnell Library of New York. In 1994, Yellow Robe's career as an educator was honored in a performance of ''"Rosebud's Song"'' by the National Dance Institute at New York City's Madison Square Garden. Provided by Wikipedia
