Pearl Carter Scott: On Top of the World

The daughter of a successful businessman in Marlow, Oklahoma, Pearl Carter Scott was a dedicated and proud citizen of the Chickasaw Nation. She aspired, until her passing in 2005, to do "whatever is necessary to help my fellow Chickasaws." Pearl served as a Community Health Representative, as well as a member of the Chickasaw Nation Legislature, where she served three terms and helped oversee tremendous growth in tribal operations and services.

She was inducted into the Chickasaw Hall of Fame and the Oklahoma Aviation and Space Hall of Fame. Pearl was a member of the International Women's Air and Space Museum and was a charter member of the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian.

In 1990, she was honored as Homecoming Queen and Guest of Honor for the 60th anniversary celebration of Wylie Post's trip around the world.

This 30-minute documentary features interviews with Pearl and her family members and is available as a companion to the Pearl DVD.
