REQUEST A GOOD TALK WITH MADONNA THUNDER HAWK
Madonna Thunder Hawk is a Lakota Matriarch and organizing force behind every modern Native occupation from Alcatraz, Wounded Knee in 1973, to the Standing Rock #NODAPL protest. Born and raised across the Oceti Sakowin homelands, she was radicalized in the late 1960s as a force of nature within the American Indian Movement and co-founded Women of All Red Nations and the Black Hills Alliance. A powerful voice for Native resistance and sovereignty, Thunder Hawk has spoken around the world as part of the global movement for Indigenous rights, serving as a delegate to the United Nations. Featured in the 2018 Peabody nominated film WARRIOR WOMEN, she lives on Cheyenne River reservation where she established the Wasagiya Najin "Grandmothers' Group," works as a tribal liaison for the Lakota People’s Law Project and is the matriarch behind the Warrior Women Project, a collective for the development of scholarship, media, and activism. She is the Original Gangster Granny.
