Emma (Hasseoveo) King, born 6 June 1893, died 16 September 1947, was a mission worker in the General Conference Mennonite mission in Lame Deer, Montana. In 1919 she was the first person who gave testimony against the sexual practices connected with the Cheyenne Sun Dance. Her testimony led to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs banning the Sun Dance for a time. Later she became one of the few women hired by the mission as a "native helper." She was not only a translator, but a preacher who gave messages from the pulpit "when emergency called." Missionary Bertha Kinsinger Petter reported that one Cheyenne had asked her, "Why not ordain Hasseoveo for the ministry?... Although a woman, she is (as) capable as the men. Her life is consistent. She knows the Word and speaks well. We all love her." In spite of King's acceptance in a leadership role, she was never ordained to the ministry.
