About this movie

Winona LaDuke believes Big Oil is the black snake predicted in indigenous prophecy to bring the earth’s destruction. When proposed new oil pipelines threaten sacred wild rice lakes, Winona dreams of organizing a spiritual ride, riding her horse against the current of oil “because a horse can kill a snake.”

Standing up to Big Oil is a daunting task and one that can get the best of any of us. Winona LaDuke has been standing strong for over three decades and this film is certain to provide a spark of inspiration to all activists out there who might need some motivation when times are tough. First Daughter and the Black Snake is not just a film for activists though. It is an important film for all of us who care about our Earth, humans, and our fellow animal species that we share our home with. Winona, and this film by filmmaker Keri Pickett, are proof that it is worth standing for what is right. -Rob Greenfield
