2969 Mission St., San Francisco

The State of Nebraska’s refusal to halt alcohol sales to the dry Pine Ridge Indian Reservation from its border town of Whiteclay gets an in-depth look in this documentary about a century-old problem. Four off-sale beer stores in this 14-person hamlet sell over 11,000 cans of beer a day to an Indian cli-entele with virtually no legal place to drink it. Struggling with crippling pov¬erty and epidemic alcohol abuse that afflicts 4 out of 5 families, the Oglala Sioux Tribe has for decades banned the sale and possession of alcohol on their reservation.

The Battle for Whiteclay follows Indian activists through the streets of Whiteclay to the halls of Nebraska’s State Capitol in their efforts to end al¬cohol sales in the place many have dubbed “skid row on the prairie.” Here is an inside look at an important contemporary conflict pitting American In¬dian rights against state and local governments in the United States. 2008, 113min.
