A Native American mother and daughter stand in front of a car and face the camera with a powerful gaze

Rescheduled from November 18!

The Center presents a Q+A and discussion on December 16 with filmmaker Beth Castle and American Indian Movement veteran and Lakota matriarch Madonna Thunder Hawk, following the November 16 screening of the film WARRIOR WOMEN. Brad Heck, Director of VCFA’s MFA in Film program, and director of the film SISTERS RISING, will moderate the discussion.

WARRIOR WOMEN is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, an American Indian Movement leader who shaped a kindred group of activists’ children—including her daughter Marcy—into the “We Will Remember” Survival School as a Native alternative to government-run education. Together, Madonna and Marcy fought for Native rights in an environment that made them more comrades than mother-daughter. Today, with Marcy now a mother herself, both are still at the forefront of Native issues, fighting against the environmental devastation of the Dakota Access Pipeline and for Indigenous cultural values.
