Event Description

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.

Tickets are $15 for the general public and $10 for non-Coe students 18 and younger and seniors 55 and older. Visit coe.edu/box-office to purchase tickets. Coe College students, faculty and staff attend for free.
