Sisters Rising is a powerful feature documentary about six Native American women reclaiming personal and tribal sovereignty.
Sisters Rising follows six women who refuse to let this pattern of violence continue in the shadows: a tribal cop in the midst of the North Dakota oil boom; an attorney fighting to overturn restrictions on tribal sovereignty; an Indigenous women’’s self-defense instructor; grassroots advocates working to influence legislative change; and the author of the first anti-sex trafficking code to be introduced to a reservation’s tribal court. Their stories shine an unflinching light on righting injustice on both an individual and systemic level.
