The Navajo Nation Council announced that Agnes Laughter, a weaver and the sole Native American to challenge voter identification requirements of Proposition 200 in 2006, has died.
Born in 1932 near Canyon de Chelly in a traditional Navajo hogan without running water or electricity, Laughter was only 16 years old when Native Americans got the right to vote in 1948, according to a post from Canyon de Chelly National Monument.
By 1970, Laughter was a 38-year-old sheep herder in Chilchinbeto, and the ban on required literacy tests was reaffirmed by the Supreme Court in Oregon v. Mitchell, the post said.
Despite speaking only her native Navajo language and never attending school in her life, Laughter never gave up the fight for voting rights for Native Americans.
