[Film spotlight] The Lakota Daughters examines the life of Lakota girls in South Dakota

A new documentary, titled The Lakota Daughters, takes a look at the lives of girls and women on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

"Poverty, drugs, alcohol, frequent disappearances of young women and the absence of law enforcement are all issues plaguing the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation in South Dakota. But women there are trying to make the future better and brighter as they work to create "a girl society" that is aimed at helping girls aged 10 to 18."
