A Celebration of Women's History Month

Thank you for joining us in Celebration of Native Women

March 1-31, 2021

Thank you for joining us on a month-long worldwide online streaming event in celebration of Women’s History Month. “CommUNITY: Herald Native Women” featured a curation of online films all produced and/or directed by Native women. Our program portrayed Native women in leadership, coming of age, and language revitalization stories suitable for the entire family. Accompanying the films, Vision Maker Media, in partnership with Americans for Indian Opportunity (AIO), hosted a moderated panel with effective Native women leaders for social change.
