Welcome to The Warrior Women Project Oral History Archive – a collection of interviews with the visionary women who shaped the Red Power Movement of the 1970s. These women stood at the forefront of a movement that sought to reclaim Native American identity, sovereignty, and self-determination in the face of centuries of colonialism, oppression, and genocide. They challenged the status quo and fought for a better future for their communities, their families, and themselves.

These are stories of resistance, resilience, and hope. They show us what it means to be a Warrior – to stand up for what you believe in, even in the face of adversity. They remind us that change is possible, but it requires courage, determination, and solidarity. 

The Warrior Women Project (WWP) is an Indigenous-led innovative collaboration working in solidarity and intergenerationally to bring back matriarchy through revealing the unknown history of leadership and power inherent to Indigenous women. This transformative history is recovered through community-informed research and activist archiving which informs our media production, rapid response activism, and the creation of a  decolonizing curricula and teaching toolkits to be used for impact education.
