“Young Lakota"

Monday, November 25, 2013

Producers/directors Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt talk about their documentary “Young Lakota,” along with Sunny Clifford, who’s featured in the film. It follows Sunny, a young Lakota woman who returns to the Pine Ridge Reservation with a dream to change the world around her. Her political awakening begins when the tribe’s first female president, Cecelia Fire Thunder, defies a South Dakota law banning abortion by threatening to build a women’s clinic on the reservation. “Young Lakota” is playing as part of Independent Lens on PBS on November 25, at 10:00 p.m.

I see the feminist-abortionst have taken over the Lakotah Sioux nation too, apparently.

Freedom and independence for the Lakotah Sioux! The UN should intervene and call for an end to all settlements on Sioux land, and give the Lakotah Sioux non-member state observer status which would give the Lakotah the right to bring the US to the ICC for war crime charges against their people! Free the Sioux!
