The Sego Lily

The Sego Lily was chosen as the symbol for the High Plains Women’s Museum.

With its variations of color, each one enhancing the uniqueness and beauty of the others, the Sego Lily represents the diversity cherished by the museum. White may be the dominant color, but it is the burgundy, yellow, pink and green that make it beautiful.

The Sego Lily is a lovely ornamental flower, but it is also a nourishing one, for underneath the blossom lives a bulb that was harvested by Native American women to provide sustenance and variety in their diet.

The Sego Lily, like a woman, is more than a pretty face.
