Bright Lights Cinema Series: ‘Lakota Nation vs. the United States’

November 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST

Directed by Jesse Short Bull and Laura Tomaselli (documentary). Lakota Nation vs. the United States chronicles the Lakota Indians’ century-long quest to reclaim the Black Hills, sacred land that was stolen in violation of treaty agreements. A searing, timely portrait of resistance, the film explores the ways America has ignored its debt to indigenous communities, and ponders what might be done today to repair the wrongs of the past. Discussion with Emerson Associate Professor Adam Spry (White Earth Anishinaabe) to follow.  [CC, AD]
