I discovered a 3-part documentary series called "Epic Warrior Women" which is narrated by Lynda Carter. 😘 I'm only 5 minutes in, but they've already shown "Amazons" (from Scythia, Central Asia) not to be white. Off to a good start! 👍
Oooh, the Agoojie of the West African kingdom of Dahomey are fascinating - they were crack female warriors, guarding the king (and serving as enforcers/tax collectors). I wonder if that's where the Dora Milaje from the MCU come from?
