From Wounded Knee to Standing Rock: A Reporter's Journey is a film about two of the biggest moments in modern Indian history: the 1973 occupation of Wounded Knee and the 2016 pipeline resistance at Standing Rock. This is the story of Willard Carlson, a member of Yurok tribe — the largest Native American tribe in California — who discovered his "Indian-ness" at Wounded Knee. Following that 10-week siege, he returned to California to fight for Yurok sovereignty and fishing rights on the Klamath River. The film is an intimate portrait of his bittersweet journey from Wounded Knee to Standing Rock, where he and members of some 280 tribes have come together to oppose an 1,100 mile oil pipeline, which they believe threatens Native burial grounds and a precious water supply.
