Warrior Women is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, an American Indian Movement (AIM) leader who, in the 1970s, shaped a group of AIM activists' children - including her daughter Marcy - into the "We Will Remember" Survival School as a Native alternative to government-run education.

This film explores what it means to navigate a movement and motherhood and how activist legacies are passed down and transformed from generation to generation in the context of colonizing government that meets Native resistance with violence.

Please mark Native American Heritage month by joining us for a screening of this film, which was the 2018 selection of the San Francisco American Indian Festival, the winner of best doc feature American Indian Film Festival 2018 and which was the official selection of 22 other film festivals.
