'We Women Warriors' – March 31

In Colombia’s war-torn indigenous villages, three brave women use nonviolent resistance to defend their people’s survival. Hosted by the Department of World Languages and Cultures and Latin American Studies at Elon University

The screening of the documentary “We Women Warriors” (Tejiendo sabiduría) is followed by a Q&A via Skype with the director, Nicole Karsin

“We Women Warriors” is an independent documentary feature that follows three native women caught in the crossfire of Colombia’s warfare who are using nonviolent resistance to defend their people’s survival. In Colombia there are 102 aboriginal groups, one-third of which are in danger of extinction because of the ongoing conflict. Trapped in a protracted predicament financed by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading and creating transformation imbued with hope. “We Women Warriors” bears witness to rights abuses and interweaves character-driven stories about female empowerment, unshakable courage and faith in the survival of indigenous culture.
