FIRST DAUGHTER AND THE BLACK SNAKE REVIEWED
“First Daughter and the Black Snake” follows Winona LaDuke’s efforts to stomp out the evils of Big Oil. While following the documentary’s events, it is disheartening to know how the Pipeline battle went. The black snake myth plays heavy into how the film prepares itself, but so much of the film is just hurt by knowing that the fight is going so bad. I know that I’m dwelling on that one aspect of a 94 minute long documentary. That being said, this film needs to be setup as a way to understand what Winona LaDuke wants to see done. Watch the documentary and then google her.

The Plot Thus Far
Winona LaDuke wants to grow corn and put up solar panels, but when a proposed oil pipeline threatens her sacred wild rice territory she must spring into action and defend clean water with treaties, slow food and spiritual horse rides.
