Free screening of Warrior Women documentary


Hanna Boys Center

Saturday November 16th 2019 - 6:00pm to

On Saturday, Nov. 16, the community is invited to Hanna Boys Center for a free screening of Warrior Women, an award-winning documentary following 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 children who bear witness. The screening will be followed by a talk with local indigenous elders gathered by Judy Talaugon (Chumash).

Admission and popcorn are free. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the movie at 6:30 p.m. Hanna Boys Center is located at 17000 Arnold Dr. in Sonoma.

The movie is part of the Hanna Institute’s Film Series, which brings movies about thinkers, changers and leaders to the big screen. “We want to be able to bring these films to our community as a way to get us all thinking and talking about the issues impacting us all. This one in particular is so important – not only as the first of many events celebrating our local indigenous history and sharing the truth around the holocaust caused by the missions, but as a voice highlighting the women of color written out of the civil rights movement,” said Nick Dalton (Mvskoke Creek), co-director of the Hanna Institute.
