This well-researched film by Dakota Sioux filmmaker Sheldon Wolfchild weaves oral and written history and traditional Dakota beliefs together, telling the Dakota story in a way that textbooks never did.

The film looks at the US Supreme Court’s basis for legal dominion over non-Christian people, showing us how the language/code of domination, modeled after the Old Testament and fifteenth century Vatican documents, is the basis of the religious racism of U.S. federal Indian law and policy to this day.
