Wednesday April 13: Lady Warriors presented by Missy Whiteman
Directed by John Goheen (2001)

Lady Warriors is the compelling story of seven Native American teenage girls who are Arizona state cross-country running champions, in training for another championship competition. They believe that establishing outstanding reputations as runners will enhance their chances of getting scholarships to college.

The film takes place on the Navajo and Hopi reservations in and around Tuba City, Arizona and on the road—as the women prepare for their fourth consecutive state championship competition.
