EDI Independent Film: Young Lakota | WisCommunity

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 abortions, with no exceptions for rape or incest, by threatening to build a women's clinic on the sovereign territory of the reservation. She ignites a political firestorm that sets off a chain reaction in the lives of three young Lakotas on the Pine Ridge Reservation, forcing each of them to make choices that define who they are and the kind of adults they will become.This is a self-paced training session that will take place on CANVAS. Once you have registered for the event, watched the film, and completed the reflection on CANVAS, you will receive your Tier 2 Credit towards the Student EDI Certificate.
