Lakota Nation vs United States

August 24, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

A chronicle about how the Lakota Indians fight to reclaim control of the Black Hills. This film investigates how the sacred land was stolen in violation of treaty agreements and features interviews with Indigenous citizens.

This stunning film, directed by Jesse Short Bull and Laura Tomaselli, interleaves interviews of Lakota activists and elders with striking images of the Black Hills and its wildlife, historical documents and news reports, clips from old movies and other archival footage to extraordinary effect, demonstrating not only the physical and cultural violence inflicted on the Lakota but also their deep connection to the Black Hills, the area where Mount Rushmore was erected.
