Screening/Reception: Warrior Women

Join NYWIFT and Vision Maker Media for a reception, screening and conversation for the upcoming documentary Warrior Women by Christina D. King and Elizabeth A. Castle. 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 cultivated a rag-tag gang of activist children - including her daughter Marcella - into the "We Will Remember" Survival Group as a Native alternative to government-run boarding schools. Together, Madonna and Marcella fought for Native rights in an environment that made them more comrades than mother-daughter. Special guests Madonna Thunder Hawk and Marcella Gilbert will join the filmmakers in a conversation moderated by Producer Yvonne Russo.
