A new documentary film chronicling the United States government’s forced removal of Indigenous peoples from their sacred Black Hills, “Lakota Nation vs. United States,” will screen at The Park Theatre, 19 Main St. in Jaffrey, starting Friday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. and continuing through Sept. 12.

The Black Hills is an isolated mountain range rising from the Great Plains in western South Dakota and extending into Wyoming. The land was taken from the Lakota people in violation of treaty agreements. The film, directed by Jesse Short Bull and Laura Tomaselli, explores America’s debt to Indigenous communities and ponders what might be done today to repair the past.
