FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Northridge — The University Student Union (USU) in collaboration with the Women’s Research & Resource Center, “American Indian Student Association” and American Indian Studies, proudly invites all students, staff, and faculty to learn more about the fight for Native American rights and watch the important documentary film “Warrior Women” during “An Afternoon with Madonna Thunder Hawk and Elizabeth Castle”. On Thursday, Nov. 5 at 4 p.m., come join us for this powerful screening, a discussion and Q&A with the compelling women involved. Don’t miss this opportunity to inform yourself about the American Indian Movement (AIM) leaders who stood strong at the forefront of Native American issues.
“Native American justice is interconnected with the liberation of all communities, and it is essential that we learn and center the experiences of Native voices in the movement,” said Jessica Aceves, Diversity and Inclusion Operations Assistant, “The USU wants to bring our community the true history of this country from reliable sources and inspiring activists.”
Join us to for a conversation with Madonna Thunder Hawk and Dr. Elizabeth Castle, director of Warrior Women. The inspiring documentary is about AIM leaders who influenced group of activists’ children into the “We Will Remember” Survival School as a native alternative to the government-run education. Featured in the film, Madonna and her daughter Marcy, who is now a mother herself, are both still fighting against the environmental devastation of the Dakota Access Pipeline and for Indigenous Peoples’ cultural values.
This is a great opportunity to hear the true story behind the hidden fight Native Americans have faced at “An Afternoon with Madonna Thunder Hawk and Elizabeth Castle”. To be part of it, join us over Zoom (Meeting ID: 87188783909 Password: 086158). For more information, please visit csun.edu/usu.
