What advice Amber Midthunder would give other people who want to become warriors


“Prey” provides many reasons to be praised. However, for a certain viewer, what makes the latest installment in the “Predator” franchise superior to its four predecessors is Naru, Amber Midthunder’s aspiring Comanche hunter. Tradition designates women as caregivers responsible for domestic tasks, but Naru does not subscribe to that role. She is more comfortable tracking game with her loyal dog Sarii by her side. That is how she crosses paths with an enormous bipedal alien that sees Earth as its own game preserve and humans as the ultimate prize.

She tries to warn them that a new danger is nearby; they think the tracks she’s found belong to a bear. Instead of leaving that problem to them, however, she heads out to confront it . . . solo. A couple of years ago I spelled out my frustration at pop culture’s persistent rehashing of the white warrior woman archetype, lamenting the dearth of such leading roles for women of color. “Prey” delivers a potent response through Midthunder’s Naru, a warrior who is not a divine weapon or designated to fulfill some distant purpose, but simply someone who wants to protect her home and loved ones.

Naru knows things, like how to gather and use medicinal plants, and notices things men don’t, like the way the otherworldly butcher hunting the rest of her party uses his tools and how they work. No one except for her brother Taabe (Dakota Beaversis interested in helping Naru to complete the rite of passage known as Kühtaamia, requiring warriors to successfully track and confront prey that’s also hunting them. So she trains hard, innovates improvements to her weapons to make up for what she may lack in brute strength, and learns to live her life as she sees fit.

With caution and courage, Naru brings home the head of the same type of alien that nearly ended Arnold Schwarzenegger’s special forces commander in the original “Predator” movie. And that act also proves these lethal aliens are equal opportunity foes: neither his soldier, Dutch, nor Naru, are strong enough to physically overpower a Predator. They can only defeat it by being intelligent. That’s why women have survived Predator encounters before, as shown in ‘s “Alien vs. Predator,” an offshoot of the franchise where Sanaa Lathan’s artic guide outlasted her alien fighting partner.

Raga’s Isabelle may have survived the hunt, but it was Naru’s ingenuity and bravery that saw her through to the end. She didn’t rely on any mystical powers or prophecies–she earned her victory through her own hard work.

The film “The Predator” is a work of meticulous creative precision, from the director’s decision to shoot the film in versions featuring the English language and the Comanche language, to the producer’s insistence on presenting the details of th-century life in the Comanche Nation as accurately as possible. The director, producers, and cast have all contributed to creating a realistic and faithful portrayal of Comanche culture.


In conclusion, it was Naru’s hard work and bravery that saw her through to the end. She didn’t rely on any mystical powers or prophecies–she earned her victory through her own hard work.
