The Lakota Daughters

Doc Shorts |  33m

LA Premiere | United States

Poverty, drugs, alcohol addiction, frequent disappearances of young women and the absence of law enforcement are all issues plaguing the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation in South Dakota. Following strong matrilineal traditions of Native American cultures, the women of the Lakota tribe are working to create “a girl society” that fosters resilience and self-assurance in girls aged 10 to 18, and empowers future generations of the Lakota women.
