Maria Tallchief is included in the annual "The Lives They Lived" issue of The New York Times Magazine. Article by Jennifer Homans. (Scroll down.)

 

She was an empiricist: not “I think therefore I am,” more like “I dance therefore I feel.” She had unusual physical strength, but this did not come from steadily building muscles from the inside. It was a hungry and willful strength, inhaled, reached for and pulled in from the world outside, and sent down the back, arms and hands. Her focus, like her spine, was formidable. “Weak,” she would say disparagingly as she pressed on our extended arms and they gave way. “Too weak.”
