This is the story of an American hero. One who stands tall amongst the likes of Robert Kennedy, Harriet Tubman and Martin Luther King, Jr. Someone who humbly defied the odds and overcame insurmountable obstacles to fight injustice and gave a voice to the voiceless. And yet few people know her name. This is the story of an American legend, Wilma Mankiller, who overcame rampant sexism and personal challenges to emerge as the Cherokee Nation’s first woman Principal Chief in 1985. MANKILLER is the only feature-length documentary that examines the legacy of the formidable Wilma Mankiller and reunites the documentary team of Gale Anne Hurd and Valerie Red-Horse Mohl for their third and most powerful film.

VALERIE RED-HORSE MOHL
Valerie Red-Horse Mohl, Director and Producer of MANKILLER, is of Cherokee ancestry and the owner/founder of Red-Horse Native Productions, Inc. Red-Horse Mohl and her company have become the preeminent collaborator with American Indian tribal nations to bring important Native stories accurately and respectfully to the screen.
Valerie’s body of work spans over two decades of film and television content creation and production; always providing insightful, sensitive and unique perspectives for both the historical and contemporary indigenous story. The Company’s premiere feature film, NATURALLY NATIVE, was an official Sundance Festival selection, which Red-Horse wrote, produced, co-directed, starred in and distributed. Red-Horse Mohl followed this with the WWII PBS/ITVS award winning documentary, TRUE WHISPERS: THE STORY OF THE NAVAJO CODE TALKERS, co-produced with Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Entertainment.
Red-Horse Mohl also produced/directed a follow-up program, again with Hurd, CHOCTAW CODE TALKERS (Vision Maker Media/PBS), in 2010.
GALE ANNE HURD
Gale Anne Hurd is one of the industry’s most respected film and television producers. In 1984, after working in various capacities for legendary producer Roger Corman, Hurd produced and co-wrote her first feature film, The Terminator. The film was a box office and critical success, and has since become a genre classic. This success was quickly followed by Aliens, which received seven nominations and two Academy Awards®, followed by the Academy Award®-winning films The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and The Ghost and the Darkness. Some of her additional credits include Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk, The Waterdance, which won Sundance’s Audience and Screenplay Awards, and MANKILLER, the award-winning Native American PBS documentary. Hurd’s most recent feature, the Lionsgate/CBS Films’ Hell Fest, was released theatrically worldwide in 2018 and is now available on Netflix.
Along with The Walking Dead, Hurd is also an Executive Producer of the show’s companion series, Fear the Walking Dead, as well as the third chapter in the ‘Walking Dead’ series, The Walking Dead: World Beyond. She also serves as a Consulting Producer on AMC’s top-rated talk show, Talking Dead. A ‘Walking Dead’ feature film was also announced and will premiere theatrically via Universal Pictures, with Hurd serving as a Producer.
Hurd’s anthology series, Lore, based on the popular historical podcast of the same name, is currently streaming its first and second seasons on Amazon. Her recent Executive Producer credits also include two seasons of Falling Water for the USA Network and Hunters for Syfy.
A long-time former Board Member and Officer of the Producers Guild of America, Hurd received the organization's coveted David O. Selznick Award for Achievement in Feature Film. She has served as a Governor of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and on the Boards of the American Film Institute, the Waterkeeper Alliance, and the Ocean Conservancy.
