WATCH NOW : The Woman King Full Movie 2022
The Woman King is a 2019 American period, historical fiction film based on the true story of the 19th century queen Lachaw yi Augh. Augh was a Cherokee woman who disguised herself as a man in order to lead her tribe during its time of struggle. The movie follows her journey as she rises from obscurity and becomes the leader that her people need so desperately. The Woman King is inspired by the real life story of Sarah Gadke, also known as “the woman King” when she served in the Cherokee Council from 1866-1867. She was one of few women to serve in that capacity and the first female chief of chiefs. She fought for women’s rights within the tribe, and against unfair laws imposed on Native Americans by the U.S government at that time.
The film opens on the day of the Cherokee National Council, where we meet Chief Wah chee, played by Gary Young, who is the head of the council and Augh’s father. He is very much a man of the old ways and is not happy to be welcoming a woman into the Council. But, he gave his word and now all he can do is try to find ways to get rid of her.
Augh, played by Q’orianka Shumway, is an outsider who has been brought in to replace her brother as the tribe’s leader. Augh has had to fight her whole life to be respected. She has been able to conquer challenges many would find overwhelming, and has proven herself to be a strong leader through many life-threatening circumstances. She is the woman king.
