Jeanne Raymond, along with other activists, is featured in historian James Gregory's web project entitled Seattle Civil Rights & Labor History Project which includes a substantial section devoted to the experience of urban Indians in Seattle. It is located at the University of Washington.
Jeanne Raymond attended Western Washington College in the late 1960s, where she took classes from Vine Deloria and participated in the American Indian Student Union’s Right to Be Indian Conference. After college, she was recruited to join the American Indian Studies Program at the University of Washington while attending graduate school in Spanish. She taught American Indian Studies courses at Seattle Central Community College. Later, she served as President of the Parent Committee that co-founded Seattle’s American Indian Heritage High School, and worked for the High School as its Assistant Program Manager.
