Episode 11: Pretty Bird Woman

November 19, 2020

In 2001, Standing Rock Indian Reservation resident Ivy Archambault, whose Lakota name was Pretty Bird Woman, devoted herself to helping her community through her work as a social worker. On one October night, she mysteriously disappeared. While the investigation and subsequent arrest that followed were fairly expedient, the systemic issues that lead to her rape and murder are anything but simple. Join us as Tommy takes Mick through a crash course in reservation dynamics and the beautiful legacy Pretty Bird’s family set up in her honor.
