Maria Tallchief was born Elizabeth Marie Tall Chief in 1925. She was the daughter of an Osage tribe member and her presence in the Ballet world, revolutionized the art for women and Native American women specifically.
Maria Tallchief was honored with inductions into the National Women's Hall of Fame and the Kennedy Center Honors for her work in dance. She founded the Chicago Ballet and danced with the New York City Ballet as their first Prima Ballerina, a title she held for 13 years. She popularized the art of Ballet with her dynamic technique and musicality. Her strength as a dancer was unparalleled and gave her the star power to turn ballets into hits. Her role as the Sugarplum Fairy in the Nutcracker, made the Nutcracker into the sensation it is today.
We are honoring Maria Tallchief with a donation to Cora Dance. Cora Dance works to foster intersectionality and involvement in New York's youth. They are a pay-what-you-can studio, offering classes for whatever the child's family is able to pay. They will never turn away a child who wants to learn. Our donation will help pay for the tuition of a child eager to learn to dance. She could be the next Maria Tallchief.
