MANKILLER - Activist. Feminist. Cherokee Chief.

This is the story of an American hero.  One who stands tall amongst the likes of Robert Kennedy, Harriet Tubman and Martin Luther King, Jr.  Someone who humbly defied the odds and overcame insurmountable obstacles to fight injustice and gave a voice to the voiceless.  And yet few people know her name.  This is the story of an American legend, Wilma Mankiller, the Cherokee Nation’s first woman Principal Chief.

In 1990 she signed an unprecedented Cherokee Nation self-determination agreement with the federal government. In 1998, recognizing her impressive leadership and achievements, President Bill Clinton awarded her the Medal of Freedom.  A stalwart activist for women's rights, Wilma Mankiller was cited by the organizers of the January 2017 Women's March on Washington as one of the most important leaders in America's movement for equality. MANKILLER reminds audiences of the true meaning of servant leadership and serves as a wakeup call to take action for positive change.
