									Buffalo Nation: The Children Are Crying tells the story of the Lakota Nation from their hearts and minds. The Lakota Sioux (and many other indigenous Nations) are forced to live on the 'Reservation,' a designated prisoner of war camp. This movie is a saga of displacement, neglect, deprivation, abolishment of traditional beliefs, language, mores and culture. Yet, despite the many challenges, the Lakota will not give up!

2018 Best Feature Film - Direct Short Documentary and Film Festival - Awards

"Scenes of rundown housing, gang fights, poverty, and despair are heartbreaking in this program, which puts a face on Lakota Sioux and other members of indigenous Nations who are striving to save their cultures against overwhelming odds." - Booklist (video review)
