Young Lakota




When Cecelia Fire Thunder, the first female President of the Oglala Sioux tribe, challenges a South Dakota law criminalizing all abortion, she ignites a political firestorm that sets off a chain reaction in the lives of three young Lakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation, forcing each of them to define who they are and the kind of adults they will become.

Sovereign Bodies is a companion series to Young Lakota.
