Encore Screening from the 2018 Festival program - An audience favorite!

Through the figure of Lakota activist and community organizer Madonna Thunder Hawk, this inspiring film traces the untold story of countless Native American women struggling for their people's civil rights.

Spanning several decades, Christina D. King and Elizabeth A. Castle's documentary charts Thunder Hawk's lifelong commitment, from her early involvement in the American Indian Movement (AIM), to her pivotal role in the founding of Women of All Red Nations, to her heartening presence at Standing Rock alongside thousands protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. She passed her dedication and hunger for change to her daughter Marcy, even if that often meant feeling like comrades-in-arms more than mother and child.

"Through rare archival material—including amazing footage of AIM's occupation of Wounded Knee—and an Indigenous style of circular storytelling, Warrior Women rekindles the memories and legacy of the Red Power movement's matriarchs." ~ HotDocs

Patricia St. Onge, local indigenous activist, non-profit leader, and adopted sister of Madonna Thunder Hawk, will be talking about women's indigenous leadership in the Bay Area after the screening. 

Directed by Christina D. King and Elizabeth A. Castle, 64 Minutes
