This searing, timely portrait of resistance chronicles the Lakota Indians’ quest to reclaim the Black Hills, their sacred birthplace stolen by violations of treaty agreements. With rich archival material, electrifying on-the-ground footage and intimate interviews, the film explores the ways America has ignored its debt to Indigenous communities. What ultimately emerges is a lyrical and provocative testament to a land and a people who have survived removal, exploitation and genocide--and whose best days are yet to come.
