On November 20th, 1969 at 2am a group of Indigenous activists sailed to Alcatraz under the night, claiming the Island through the right of discovery. The nineteen month occupation that followed has had lasting lasting impacts on the island, the occupiers, and modes of Native resistance in the United States and beyond. This project looks specifically at the experiences and roles of women during the occupation, an aspect that I argue has been historiographical overlooked.
