FNFVF Film Screening: Warrior Women


Directed by Christina D. King, Elizabeth Castle

2018 - Documentary, Run Time: 1h 7min

“Warrior Women” is the story of mothers and daughters fighting for Indigenous rights in the American Indian Movement of the 1970s. The film unveils not only a female perspective of this history, but also examines the impact political struggles have on the children who bear witness. The film is part of a bigger ongoing initiative known as the Warrior Women Project (WWP), an innovative collaboration of community-based scholarship, media, leadership development, and grassroots activism that provides a forum for Indigenous activists to tell their stories for the benefit of future generations. You can find more information about the project at warriorwomen.org. – (https://www.warriorwomenfilm.com/)

The film will be followed by a discussion with Northern Arapaho filmmaker Ernest Whiteman III, who is the Director of the First Nations Film and Video Festival.
