Georgianna Lincoln of the river village of Rampart has been named an Alaska Woman of the Century, commemorating the centennial of the women's right to vote in 1920.

Well known in the Copper Valley, Lincoln has had an active career with both Doyon and a number of other organizations, including the Alaska Native Heritage Center, the National Indian Health Board, and the Alaska Native Health Board.

She served the Copper River Valley for 14 years in the Alaska State Legislature, and retired from the State Senate in 2005. She is the only Alaska Native woman who has ever been elected to the state senate. Her massive district included part of the Copper River Valley as her constituents.
