"The Thick Dark Fog" airing in Minnesota
The Thick Dark Fog, airing on Lakeland Public Television, tells the story of one man coming to terms with the past. The story is universal, speaking to anyone who has had to revisit their past in order to move forward.
Walter Littlemoon is a 69-year-old Lakota man born and raised in Wounded Knee, South Dakota. At the age of five, he was removed from his family to attend a Federal government boarding school where his culture, language and spirituality were suppressed. The Thick Dark Fog profiles Walter's journey to heal himself and his community while reclaiming his heritage. The film's title comes from Walter's own self-diagnosis of the state-of-mind that he lived in for so many years until he began to tell his story and heal from his childhood trauma.
