The Lakota Daughters

The Lakota Daughters is a 30-minute Voice of America documentary film about the women and girls of the Oglala Lakota Nation in South Dakota. In a community dealing with the effects of persistent structural racism and attempts to erase Native culture, the women chronicled in this film work to make the future better and brighter for girls aged 10 to 18 by creating a network of "Girl Societies" across their districts using tools designed by the Indigenous Adolescent Girls' Empowerment Network (IMAGEN), a program of the Population Council.
