Without a Whisper– Konnon:Kwe: Documentary and Q & A with Mohawk Bear Clan Mother Louise Herne
Tuesday, March 9, 2021 6:00 pm join via Zoom

Before the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls in 1848, European colonial women lacked
even the most basic rights, while Haudenosaunee women had a potent political and spiritual voice
and authority in all aspects of their lives. The contact that the early suffragists had with
Haudenosaunee women in New York state shaped their thinking and had a vital impact on their
struggle for equality that is taken for granted today. The film follows Mohawk Bear Clan Mother
Louise Herne and Professor Sally Roesch Wagner as they seek to correct the historical narrative
about the origins of women’s rights in the United States.
