Araminta is Nana Harriet Tubman's born name, and her work and determined sacrifices to free her people make us all know her name today. Nana Araminta freed several hundred of her brothers and sisters, and was the first woman to lead armed forces in warfare while serving as a scout and spy in the Union Army. It's said she liberated in total over 1,000 of her people. The design of these waistbeads capture her very essence!
