Join us in celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day! Today, our nation acknowledges the great triumphs, beauty, and resiliency of Indigenous people while also recognizing the systemic harm and marginalization that Indigenous people have faced over the past few centuries. We hope you take today to educate yourself on Indigenous organizations, authors, leaders, and issues.

Warrior Women Project

“We are a collaborative of matriarchs, historians, community organizers and multimedia storytellers working to bring to light the radical impact of Indigenous women through recent history. We believe the stories of matriarchs should be told in their own words—as organizers, thinkers, relatives, community leaders, and changemakers. Here at Warrior Women Project, we work to illuminate the past in a way that inspires a radical present.”
