Event description
Join us for a special private screening of Deborah Anderson's documentary film "Women of the White Buffalo."

About this Event

The intention of this film is to shine a light on our Native sisters and to include their voices in this current wave of global Women’s resistance. To inspire the next generation of Native Americans to remember who they are and utilize their own ancient wisdom in the much needed healing of their communities. To gift non Native people an opportunity to learn from this beautiful and powerful culture and confront the forces that perpetuate inequality and historical racism which keep us separated from one another. As they say in Lakota, Mitákuye Oyás'i?, “We are all related.”

An ancient, Native, matriarchal society was upended by centuries of genocide and colonialism. This has resulted in culturally sabotaged and isolated communities that are in a constant struggle to save what remains of their sacred identity. The Lakota women living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, are rising up against the forces that continue to suppress them. By preserving and protecting their ancestral values and wisdom, they provide a source of hope to their people.

With exclusive access to the the lives of 8 women, ranging in age from 10 to 98, we deliver harrowing testimonials of loss and survival and gain insight into what it is to be a modern Native American. With inclusion of current statistics along with historical accounts, we track how these present day conditions came to be.

The unforgettable voices of these determined women inspire us with their strength, gifting us with ancient insights that speak to our current global, environmental and cultural crises. These are the powerfully rich stories of the brave women and children living in the poorest county in the United States. In their words, “It’s a prisoner of war camp.”
