REQUEST A GOOD TALK WITH ELIZABETH "BETH" CASTLE
Dr. Elizabeth "Beth" Castle works at the intersection of media, scholarship, and activism as a Shawnee-descended anti-racist educator committed to liberating and sharing unknown histories of resistance. She started the Warrior Women Project (WWP) to preserve the oral histories of Indigenous activists and disrupt the dominant historical narrative through her book Women were the Backbone, Men were the Jawbone: Native Women’s Activism in the Red Power Movement. While completing her Ph.D. at Cambridge University, she worked at the White House for President Clinton’s Initiative on Race. She co-directed the Peabody Award Nominated film, WARRIOR WOMEN (2018), and continues the collective work of the WWP in decolonizing curricula, activist archiving, and community media work.
