Now Showing: 'WARRIOR WOMEN' Film, Native American Heritage Month, 'worldchannel.org' PBS WETA



*WATCH* https://worldchannel.org/special/warrior-women/

Warrior Women
BY CHRISTINA D. KING AND ELIZABETH CASTLE. A CO-PRODUCTION OF CASTLE KING, LLC AND THE INDEPENDENT TELEVISION SERVICE, PRODUCED IN ASSOCIATION WITH VISION MAKER MEDIA.

During the American Indian Movement, mothers & daughters like Madonna Thunder Hawk & Marcy Gilbert fought for indigenous rights, protecting families and their way of life. WARRIOR WOMEN explores what it means to balance a movement with motherhood as the activist legacy is passed down from generation to generation in the face of a government that has continually met native resistance with violence.

Watch WARRIOR WOMEN and a whole collection of films as part of Native American Heritage Month. Join the conversation with us on social media using the hashtag #MyHomeIsHere.

- Warrior Women Project, https://www.warriorwomen.org/

Matriarch: /ˈmātrēˌärk/ [noun]a powerful woman in a family or society where power is passed down from mother to daughter; a woman who is the founder or dominant member of a community or group;
a venerable older woman.

Indigenous matriarchs are on the move! We are a collaborative of matriarchs, historians, community organizers and multimedia storytellers working to bring to light the radical impact of Indigenous women through recent history. We believe the stories of matriarchs should be told in their own words—as organizers, thinkers, relatives, community leaders, and changemakers. Here at Warrior Women Project, we work to illuminate the past in a way that inspires a radical present.

Our work is the culmination of 20+ years of interviewing, archiving and organizing in the legacy of the Red Power Movement of the 1970s into modern-day struggles rooted in Beth Castle’s doctoral research. Some of that work is showcased in the 2018 critically-acclaimed, Peabody-nominated film Warrior Women, co-directed by Christina D. King and Dr. Beth Castle. The film follows American Indian Movement veteran and Lakota matriarch Madonna Thunder Hawk and her daughter Marcella navigating leadership, motherhood, and community in Indigenous resistance movements from the American Indian Movement, to Standing Rock, to the continued fight against colonial violence today.

In the challenging times of now, it has never been more important to uplift stories of resistance and of matriarchy, and to pass down that knowledge to the changemakers of tomorrow. Join us as we break history out of the academy and #FollowTheMatriarchs to a better future. ~ https://www.warriorwomen.org/

4. I haven't had TV or PBS for a while, just started

back with non-cable TV and getting back into following programs.

*November is Native American Heritage month, so some stations are highlighting this topic now.

*Watch* "Warrior Women" online at this Link. Just click the center button with the arrow to start:

My local PBS channel, WETA is airing some of these Native American programs, and so is a new channel I just discovered that airs them on TV and online- it's called, *worldchannel.org.*

*worldchannel.org is affiliated with PBS and other organizations: if you watch it online it will ask for your local PBS station. It offers documentaries and features from all over the world on many subjects.

>Below is a link about it and the Native Amer. programs with more info. that I posted yesterday.

> I'd say first check your local PBS TV channel(s) and their program *schedules online, to see if they are showing the Native Amer. features.

>Also explore the online website, worldchannel.org. *Look at the TOP of their main webpage where there are sections for WATCH, SCHEDULE, PROGRAMS so you can see what's offered and when.

7. Another PBS program you may like on Native Amer.

children forced to go to boarding schools away from their communities for 'instruction' and to lose their Indian identity. 'The Children of Carlise' is about the miserable school operated in PA.

I've been to that location for historical research.

Just watched Indian Horse - achingly painful excellent memoir about boarding schools...
