To help raise awareness in Tribal communities, Emmy award winning filmmaker Kyle Bell (Thlopthlocco Creek Tribal Town), in partnership with SGCETC, offers “Lakota”—a film that Tribal Nations can show to their youth and communities.
The film profiles a young woman named Lakota Beatty (Caddo/Dakota/Gros-Ventre) who is grappling with mental health issues after losing her sister to suicide.
Filmmaker Kyle Bell describes the film as a “look into how Lakota has dealt with her sister’s death mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and showing how she got through by connecting with and giving back to her own Native people.”
Contact Jay Spaan if you plan to show the film in your community and need to download it.
