Critic Reviews for Lakota Woman: Siege at Wounded Knee

All Critics (1)

Pierson wisely lets the mostly Native American cast tell the story the way they know it in their hearts and his unobtrusive direction works out very well.

Audience Reviews for Lakota Woman: Siege at Wounded Knee


This is a great film!! I've read the main character's book (Mary Crow Dog,co-written with Richard Erdoes). This film is ingenious, and told by the perspective of the main character.
