Lakota Nation vs. United States – Review. By Richard Schertzer.

Peter Pan could never, but directors Jesse Short Bull and Laura Tomaselli definitely do justice to Indigenous people and go full force with their immensely satisfying project to encapsulate audiences near and far.

The documentary film Lakota Nation vs. United States sees the directors going to uncharted territory to talk to Lakota Indians while unveiling the struggles said Indians had to endure after their land called Black Hills was taken away from them.



The film goes further in telling the story of an incredible group of people that have inspired such a magnificent story. When people look deep within the recesses of these people’s history, they find a rich cultural background that could never be found anywhere else.

It’s hard not to feel a twinge of emotion from the ordeal that these people went through. Sitting through it might be uncomfortable but it makes for a history lesson that you probably won’t hear about in your average classroom.

The cinematography is incredibly top-notch with such camera skills with great work by Kevin Phillips behind the lens as the DP. With this keen eye for cinema, Phillips opens up a whole new world of grandeur in his cinematic canvas that boldly tells the story of a people that needs to be told.

This story is so inspirational and touching that it leaves people rooting for our indigenous friends and giving people a glimmer of hope.
