Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Native American Heritage Month: Young Lakota Film Screening (DICE)


Time: Wednesday, November 28, 2018 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Location: Student Life Multicultural Center Alonso Family Room

Join American Indian Student Initiatives and Women Student Initiatives for a film screening of “Young Lakota” as a part of Native American Heritage Month 2018. In this award-winning documentary, Cecilia Fire Thunder- the first female President of the Oglala Sioux tribe, defies a proposed South Dakota law criminalizing all abortion by threatening to build a women's clinic on the sovereign territory of the reservation. Her threats ignite a political firestorm that sets off a chain reaction in the lives of three young Lakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation, forcing each of them to make choices that define who they are and the kind of adults they are becoming.
