On Thursday, October 9th, at 7pm Creighton University will be showing the documentary Sober Indian | Dangerous Indian. The film is both a story about the brave men and women who have overcome their addiction to find empowerment through sobriety, and those still struggling to overcome their addiction. Set in the weeks leading up to the Oglala Sioux Tribe’s historic vote to repeal its ban on alcohol on August 13, 2013, the documentary follows the journey of four alcoholics living on the streets of Whiteclay, Nebraska, less than 300 yards from their homes in Pine Ridge, South Dakota.

Following the screening, director and producer John A. Maisch and activist Frank LaMere will lead a discussion on the film.
