OYATE is a film about life on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota. It follows two families on Pine Ridge as they go about their daily activities over the course of a single summer. They attend rodeos, shoot clay pigeons, and participate in powwows. Family members get married, have children, and celebrate the Fourth of July. All the while, the difficult, often intractable realities of modern reservation life threaten to encroach upon them.
