THE FIGHT CLASS
JAN. 16TH @11AM
Join THE Blackfeet
NATION Boxing Club’s own & Pro fighters for a Free VIRTUAL class to help bring awareness to the epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women (#MMIW)
“Blackfeet Boxing (Browning, MT): Not Invisible” is a film about fighting—for respect, identity and acknowledgement. There are no scorecards or knockouts on the reservation. The prize at the Blackfeet Boxing Club is far more vital: survival. According to the United States Justice Department, Native American women are ten times more likely to be murdered than non-Native women.
More than one in three has suffered rape, or attempted rape, and more than 80 percent will experience violence at some point in their lives. On the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana, these are not statistics. They are stories, of lives and families, of loss and pain.
Watch the trailer here.
