A Lakota elder who is the only known Native American military pilot to serve in World War Two has been honored by a national Native American Women’s group. We attended the ceremony to ask Native women what makes Ola “Millie” Rexroat  a role model in her community.

Traditional Lakota singers offer an honoring song as 100 Native women and guests gather at Black Hills State University to acknowledge World War Two veteran Millie Rexroat.
