Director Leya Hale Attending.

Three Indigenous women–an artist, an activist, and a politician–fight to vindicate and honor their missing and murdered relatives who have fallen victims to human trafficking, a growing epidemic across Indian country.

Bring Her Home is a stunning documentary from Leya Hale, a member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota and Diné Nations. As she follows these three women on their quest for justice, she also examines the women as individuals and members of their community, as they strive to heal from the lasting effects of historical trauma, and navigate the racist systems that helped perpetuate these crimes.
