Editorial Reviews

Go on patrol in the Dakota Badlands with the Oglala Lakota Sioux police. They patrol a vast swath of the Dakota Badlands, an area more than twice the size of Connecticut. The Pine Ridge Reservation of the Oglala Sioux is a place where buffalo roam, where beat-up pickups smuggle whiskey, where unemployment runs at nearly 80 percent and the law is regarded with a blend of resignation, hatred and distrust. British filmmaker Kim Hopkins, whose father is a Native American, explores the dangerous and difficult dynamic that faces the native-born police who work the reservation. In interviews with nearly forty citizens and cops, a portrait of a climate poisoned by poverty and fear emerges, where the police are called "apples"--red on the outside, white on the inside--and their presence and the fact that they are employed engender equal resentment. In the mysterious world of the TRIBAL COP, DNA and dreams are accorded equal value.
