For at least a generation, the story of the Red Power Movement has been told through a lens that gave us a limited view about the Indian activism of that period. What was missing until now were the voices of the women.” Dina Gilio Whitaker, Colville Confederated Tribes
In the 1970s, with the swagger of unapologetic Indianness, organizers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) fought for Native liberation as a community of extended families. WARRIOR WOMEN is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, one such AIM leader who shaped a kindred group of activists’ children – including her daughter Marcy. Through their story, WARRIOR WOMEN 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.
