For generations, our ancestors have passed down indigenous culture through storytelling to benefit future generations. November is the time each year where our stories receive widespread national attention as part of Native American Heritage Month. “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 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.
