Young Lakota is a uniquely sensitive documentary portrayal of bright young people finding their way during a tumultuous political season on the Pine Ridge Reservation, that hinges on reproductive rights and tribal sovereignty. The film follows the surprising highs and lows of the statewide referendum on abortion, a divisive tribal election, and three youth who find themselves thrust into the political fight.
