Lakota Nation vs the United States - Film Screening & Panel Discussion
The Engagement Lab is thrilled to partner with Bright Lights Screening Series, Emerson Office of Sustainability, and Emerson VMA to co-present "Future Imaginaries: Visions for Environmental Justice," part of the brand new Transforming Narratives for Environmental Justice initiative.
Join us on Thursday, November 30 at 7pm for "Lakota Nation vs the United States," followed by a post-screening discussion with Emerson College professor Adam Spry (White Earth Anishinaabe).
Lakota Nation vs the United States
Lakota Nation vs. the United States chronicles the Lakota Indians’ century-long quest to reclaim the Black Hills, sacred land that was stolen in violation of treaty agreements. A searing, timely portrait of resistance, the film explores the ways America has ignored its debt to indigenous communities, and ponders what might be done today to repair the wrongs of the past.
No RSVP required. All Bright Lights screenings are free and open to the public and seating is available on a first-come basis. Doors open at 6:30pm.
