International Women’s Day 2023

At 3 Generations, it’s in our DNA to document critical human rights issues by listening to the stories of survivors.

Over the past decade, our films A Different American Dream and Lost Hope revealed the stories of generations of courageous Native American women who have suffered, survived, and risen to take an active role in transforming the communities that suffer from the effects of violent colonization and the resulting intergenerational trauma.

As we kick off Women's History Month and honor International Women's Day, we present a conversation with Alex McDougall, the daughter and granddaughter of two of our subjects from Lost Hope. Alex is a Native American activist and a transition coach with the Ain Dah Yung Center, whose work “provides a healing place within the community for American Indian youth and families to thrive in safety and wholeness.”

Our partner organization, Global Giving, is providing an exciting way to contribute to our Native American Women: Voices Across Generations campaign: Your recurring monthly donation will be matched 100% and helps us amplify the voices of these Native American women.
