Lakota Nation vs. United States
Director: Jesse Short Bull, Laura Tomaselli Run Time: 120 min. Release Year: 2022
GlobeDocs Film Festival
It is the most sacred place on earth, the birthplace of the Lakota that has shaped thought, identity and philosophy for the Očéti Šakówiŋ–the life-giving land known as the Black Hills. Yet with the arrival of the first Europeans in 1492, this sacred land has been the site of immense conflict. LAKOTA NATION VS. UNITED STATES is a searing testament to the strength of the Oyate and a visually stunning rejoinder to the distorted image of a people long-shaped by Hollywood who have survived removal, exploitation, and genocide–and whose best days are yet to come.
