Famed Lakota activist Madonna Thunder Hawk has over five decades of indigenous activism under her belt—starting with the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM) in the late '60s and running all the way to the pipeline protests at Standing Rock. Her history is synonymous with Native American culture, passing along
this idealistic fire to her daughter Marcy. A portrait of an aging firebrand filled with poignant observations on legacy and memory, Warrior Women is a powerful tribute to female activism (perfect for fans of MFF2017's Dolores).
