“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.

Following the film, there will be a discussion led by Corine Fairbanks. Corine is an Oglala Lakota writer, educator and activist. As a spokesperson for Native American rights, Fairbanks is currently one of the Lead Organizers for the American Indian Movement of Southwestern Ohio.
