Honor Song! A play by Carol O. Smart, granddaughter of Dr. Rosa Minoka-Hill

The inspiring story of Dr. Rosa Minoka-Hill (1876-1952), an early Native American woman physician and the first woman to receive honorary lifetime membership to the Wisconsin Medical Society. Dr. Hill graduated from the Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1899. In 1905, she married an Oneida man and they moved to the reservation in Wisconsin where she operated a “kitchen clinic” at her house. This is a story of remarkable challenges endured by a fierce compassion.

This program is associated with the grand opening of the People of the Waters exhibit at the Oshkosh Public Museum. For more information, please see the exhibit web page (
