Maria is named after Native American ballerina, Maria “Betty” Tallchief. Maria got her start in dance almost from birth, beginning formal dance lessons at the age of three. By the age of eight, her family moved from Oklahoma to Los Angeles with hopes to advance her career in ballet. Throughout her teenage years into her professional dancing career, Maria faced discrimination in the almost “all-white” profession. She leapt through ballet companies, but was continuously turned away due to her Native American heritage, and was encouraged to change her surname. Maria refused to forgo her identity, and went on to become America’s first Native American prima ballerina. Her success granted her the privilege to dance with the Paris Opera Ballet in France and become the first American to perform at the world-renowned Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. In 1996, Maria was awarded a Kennedy Center Honor for lifetime achievements and was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
Maria is a violet purple shade.
