Sarah Winnemucca Statue in US Capitol from Nevada



Sarah Winnemucca, Dream Fulfilled

This video is about the process, completion and dedication of the Sarah Winnemucca statue which the State of Nevada gave to the People of the United States for the National Statuary Hall Collection on March 9, 2005.

The video was produced by Gwendolyn Clancy for the Nevada Department of Cultural Affairs.

Benjamin Victor was the sculptor of the Sarah Winnemucca statue.

The Nevada Women's History Project proposed the statue and was instrumental in raising the funds to complete the project. They produced a book about this project, "It Can Be Done," which is available at in the store.

Marilyn Maxfield took the cover photo.

The Sarah Winnemucca statue is now in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center.
