March 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
With the swagger of unapologetic Indianness, organizers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) fought in the 1970s for Native liberation as a community of extended families. Warrior Women, directed by Dr. Elizabeth Castle and Christina D. King, is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, who shaped a kindred group of activists’ children – including her daughter Marcy – into the “We Will Remember” Survival School as a Native alternative to government-run education. The film explores what it means to balance a movement with motherhood and how activist legacies are passed down from generation to generation in the face of a government that has continually met Native resistance with mass violence. In celebration of National Women’s History Month. Running Time: 64 minutes.
6:15 – 6:50 P.M. Community panel discussion. Panelists TBA.
7 P.M. Screening
Q&A with Dr. Elizabeth Castle to follow.
