We are a Horse Nation (2014) documents the relationships existing and being built among the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ (Lakota, Dakota, Nakota) peoples and the Sunka Wakan Oyate (Horse Nation). Stories, history, traditional songs and culture tell the story of how people across the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ lands are bringing the Horse back in to the center of their way of life. Focusing on the healing provided by the Sunka Wakan Oyate, this film provides a positive picture of life among the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota, and pays respect to and honors the Horse Nation. Join us for a screening of the documentary, followed by a discussion with filmmaker and artist Keith BraveHeart.
Free and open to the public.
