Thursday, May 25 6:30p – Layli Long Soldier in person. Q&A moderated by Sarah Biscarra Dilley, Curator of Indigenous Programs & Community Engagement, Forge Project

For more than 100 years, the Lakota tribe in South Dakota has maintained its quest to reclaim the Black Hills, sacred land that was taken by the U.S. in what seems to be a clear violation of treaty agreements. Directors Jesse Short Bull and Laura Tomaselli and writer Layli Long Soldier (an acclaimed poet) have created a fierce portrait of 21st century activism, as communities seek to repair the wrongs of the past and build a better future for the next generations.
