Film Viewing: ‘Warrior Women’
The 1970s was an incredible moment in history that included a major shift of indigenoushood in America. Indigenous organizations arose such as AIM which fought for liberation and survival for the native communities and peoples.
Warrior Women focuses on the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, an AIM (American Indian Movement) leader who established a ‘survival school’ as an alternative to government-run education; this indigenous view of education helped shape kindred groups of activist children. One of the children being her own daughter, Marcy. Marcy and her mother continue to hold space in the forefront of native issues, one recent fight being against the environmental devastation of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The film offers the viewers a perspective on Indigenous storytelling, Indigenous motherhood, and how activist legacies are passed down from generation to generation.
