POV Film Screening: Standing Silent Nation
Friday, January 10, 2020
Join us for a free screening at the Madelyn Helling Library: Standing Silent Nation.
In April 2000, Alex White Plume and his Lakota family planted industrial hemp on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota after other crops had failed. But when federal agents raided the White Plumes' fields, the Lakota Nation was swept into a Byzantine struggle over tribal sovereignty, economic rights and common sense.
