community is created when a group of people coexist amongst one another.
Although communities have their fair share of imperfections, they give
people a sense of belonging, safety, and ownership. For most of her
life, Dorothy Patach was a nurse and educator. After retirement, she
focused on community activism in South Omaha. One of her most
recognizable projects came to be known as the Dorothy Patach
Environmental Area. Our artifacts focus on the three main centers of her
life: Culture, Education, and Environment.
