Madonna Thunder Hawk and "Warrior Women"
- 7 - 9 p.m.
- All Ages
Madonna Thunder Hawk, an Oohenumpa Lakota, is a veteran of every modern Native American occupation from Alcatraz to Wounded Knee in 1973 to the recent NODAPL (Dakota Access Pipeline) protest at Standing Rock. An eloquent voice for Native resistance and sovereignty, Thunder Hawk has spoken throughout the United States, Central America, Europe and the Middle East and served as a delegate to the United Nations in Geneva. In the last three decades at home on the Cheyenne River, she has been restoring self-determination to reservation life. The documentary film “Warrior Women” presents the story of Thunder Hawk’s lifelong career fighting for Native liberation and the generations of activists she has inspired. This event will feature a screening of “Warrior Women” as well as remarks by and discussion with Thunder Hawk following the film.
