“Young Lakota” documents the political uprising caused when Cecelia Fire Thunder – the first female President of Oglala Lakota- tries to defy South Dakota law that makes abortion a crime by opening a women’s health clinic that provides abortion care on the reservation but open to all local women. This is a story of the ongoing fight for reproductive justice.
After the film there will be a panel discussion with special guest Cecelia Fire Thunder. The panel will discuss the current realities of reproductive justice, violence and human trafficking in our communities. Prior to the screening, there will be a reception with light refreshments at Vermillion Gallery (around the corner from Northwest Film Forum).
The screening is presented by the Na’ah Illahee Fund, Longhouse Media and Cine Qua Non, in co-sponsorship with NARAL Pro-Choice Washington and The Social Justic Fund.
