Biography

Emily Peake was an Ojibwa woman who was born in Minnesota in 1920. She studied history, political science, and psychology at the University of Minnesota, and she received a Bachelor's Degree in 1947. During World War II, she served in the United States Coast Guard. She then spent the majority of her life working for the rights of Indians, especially in Minnesota. As she got older, she directed her focus on aging Indians, and she served for many years on the Minneapolis Board on Aging. She died in Minneapolis in 1995.

Jane Pejsa wrote Emily Peake's biography, "The Life of Emily Peake: One Dedicated Ojibwe," which was published in 2003. This collection consists of her research notes and manuscript materials from this project.
