Warrior Women Q&A

On February 24th in Lang Hall Auditorium, WGS was proud to welcome Native American activist Madonna Thunder Hawk and documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Castle to UNI for a screening of their award-winning film Warrior Women. The film follows Thunder Hawk, along with other Native American women, on their journey of activism at the forefront of Native issues. Following a screening of the documentary, Madonna Thunder Hawk and Elizabeth Castle answered questions from the audience about the film and their work together, which spans over a decade. This special event kicked off Women’s History Month at UNI and provided our students and community with an exceptional opportunity to meet a renowned activist and Native American icon and hear her inspiring story.
