Set against the stunning backdrop of the Northern Plains, Homeland weaves together the stories of four Lakota Indian families from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Shot over the course of several years, the film depicts the strength and vitality of Native American culture as it creates an inspiring and intimate portrait of contemporary Native life. The film has won several awards, including the American Film Institute’s AFI Fest Audience Award for Documentary; the Fargo Film Festival award for Best Documentary Feature; Nashville Independent Film Festival award for Best Short Documentary; and the Native American Music Awards prize for Best Instrumental Recording.
