A Must-Have for Marvel fans
PROTECTORS OF WAKANDA: A HISTORY AND TRAINING MANUAL OF THE DORA MILAJE, by Karama Horne, takes you inside Wakanda’s elite, all-female guard—to learn what it takes to join their ranks.
Learn what it takes to become a member of the Dora Milaje—Wakanda’s elite, all-female guard—with PROTECTORS OF WAKANDA, the exclusive in-world history, and training manual.
The world of Wakanda, a technologically advanced society with a deep history and culture, prides itself on tradition, honor, courage, and strength. There is no greater symbol of that strength than Wakanda’s leader, The Black Panther. But protection of that symbol is tasked to the Dora Milaje—a team of women serving as Wakanda’s special forces.
Step inside Marvel Comics’ Black Panther universe and follow the elite society of women warriors to discover what it’s like to train as a member of the Dora Milaje. Recruited from across all tribes, the selected initiates undergo intense training, both physical and mental. Passed down from elder Dora to initiates, with entries by General Okoye, Princess Shuri, and Queen Mother Ramonda, Protectors of Wakanda reveals not only the history and foundation of the unit, but collects the strategy, weapons, and combat training as well as the code of honor and nuances of service required to protect the Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda.
Added commentary and guidance from notable warriors, such as Mistress Zola, Ayo, Aneka, and M’yra, fill the margins of this treasured text.
Find out if you have what it takes to become a member of the Dora Milaje and bring honor to your tribe!
