Our Vision

Communities where Native women and girls are free from violence in all of its forms. There are abundant and cooperative social, financial and legal resources to create a sustainable network for protecting and supporting women and girls in need.

 

Each Montana reservation has Fierce Women Warriors who have created their own multigenerational resiliency network of strong empowered women who are leaders, mentors and defenders.

Fierce Women Warriors Society was established in 2019  by a multi-generational group of Native women concerned about the safety and welfare of women in their communities.  Our goal is to help individuals to find solutions for their immediate problem as well as create tools, resources and support for long term behavioral change.

 

Our initial target group is young at risk women. We are deeply concerned about the staggering number of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the recent heart breaking cases of young women on Montana Reservations. These cases emphasized the lack of resources, limited investigation and institutional apathy when Native women are reported missing in Montana.

 

We intend to serve as advocates and community liaisons and will network with other organizations, foundations and institutions who share our vision to support and empower Native women.  One of our first activities, A Self-Defense workshop, was held on December 2019, at Montana State University in Bozeman.  The event was made possible by our networking with the community, area professionals and the MSU chapter of MMIW.   We hope to network with others on Montana reservations to offer this program as well as establishing talking circles and support groups in the future. 

 

We are a non profit organization under the fiscal sponsorship of Hopa Mountain, a 501c3, nonprofit organization recognized by the IRS.
