Coinciding with the Winter Solstice, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe released a new documentary yesterday titled “Water Protectors of Wakpa Wasté.”

The movie is available exclusively on their website https://www.wakpawaste.com/.

Here's a little bit about the film from their press release:

Produced by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and directed by Salish filmmaker, Jessi Roullier, the film tells the untold story of the Tribe at the forefront of the battle for the future of our planet.

The documentary includes rare footage from the brutal confrontations at Standing Rock in 2016 and was filmed on location in South Dakota on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, known in Lakota as the Wakpa Wasté Oyanke (the Good River Reservation).
