Film and Discussion: Warrior Women

November14201910:30am
This timely documentary examines social and civic activism through the eyes of Madonna Thunder Hawk, a longtime organizer of the American Indian Movement (AIM). 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 often met Native resistance with mass violence. A post film discussion and Q&A will be facilitated by Mandy Van Heuvelen (Mnicoujou Lakota), Cultural Interpreter, Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.  Image courtesy of GoodDocs..
