Hear the story of how Madonna Thunder Hawk, an activist and American Indian Movement organizer, balanced her dedication to Native American movements as well as motherhood, in a 64-minute film called “Warrior Women.”
The film will be shown through Zoom at 7 p.m. on March 3 as part of Winona State University’s series of Women’s History Month events. The virtual event is free and open to the public with registration. To register email Tamara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The film digs further into how activist legacies are passed down from generation to generation -- especially in the face of a government that has a history of meeting Native American resistance with violence. Thunder Hawk, who works alongside her daughter to fight for Native rights, is at the forefront of Native issues, including the opposition of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
