The Womens National Indian Association (WINA) was founded in 1879 by a group of American women including Mary Bonney and Amelia Stone Quinton. Bonney and Quinton united against the encroachment of white settlers on land set aside for Native Americans. They also drew up a petition that addressed the binding obligation of treaties between the United States and American-Indian nations. The petition was circulated in fifteen states and was presented to President Rutherford B. Hayes at the White House and in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1880.
