Event description

Description

Free for MAD members and guests of the Feminist Institute.

Presented in partnership with the Feminist Institute, MANKILLER tells the story of American legend Wilma Mankiller, the first woman elected Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. Ranking among revolutionary leaders like Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt, Mankiller was an activist and a champion of a nation, despite having been omitted from most history books.

MANKILLER is a documentary celebrating a leader who defied all odds to make a difference for her people. During a time when American Indians found themselves disenfranchised and undervalued by the United States at large, Wilma Mankiller emerged as a champion of the Cherokee Nation and became its first female Principal Chief in 1985.

Following the screening, join us for a short conversation between MANKILLER’s executive producer, Gale Anne Hurd, and the film’s director and producer, Valerie Red-Horse Mohl, moderated by Dr. Amanda Foreman, Chairman of the Board for the Feminist Institute.
