"Warrior Women" is the untold story of mothers and daughters fighting for civil rights in the American Indian Movement of the 1970s. The film unveils not only a woman's perspective of history, but also examines the impact political struggles have on the children who bear witness. The third annual Hubbard Lecture is host to a special presentation providing a glimpse into the making of this powerful film from both behind and in front of the camera.
Visitors to the Antarctic Time Machine will travel to Antarctica and visit several time periods to learn about Antarctica's climate history. * This event is on the 2nd Sunday of the month instead of the usual 3rd Sunday.
