Turtle Island Productions seeks funding for new documentary
Hakela: The Last One
Hakela: The Last One chronicles the story of Lakota tribal member Calvin Spotted Elk, the great-great-grandson of the famed Lakota Chief Spotted Elk, erroneously know as “Big Foot,” who, along with over 300 members of his Minneconjou band were massacred at a place called Wounded Knee Creek in December, 1890.
This is the story of one Lakota man’s modern-day struggle to restore his family name, correct the historical record, fulfill his promise to his dying father, honor the memory of his brother, and take his rightful place as the last direct male blood descendant of the famed Lakota Chief Spotted Elk, aka, “Big Foot.”
