Indigenous Peoples' Heritage Month Film Series: Rhymes for Young Ghouls
This movie series is intended to celebrate the American Indian and Alaskan Native heritage and help students gain a better understanding to build a better community.
By government decree, every Indian child under the age of 16 must attend residential school. In the kingdom of the Crow, that means imprisonment at St. Dymphna's at the mercy of "Popper", the sadistic Indian agent who runs the school. At 15, Aila is hustling with her uncle Burner, she sells enough dope to pay Popper her "truancy tax", keeping her out of St.Ds. But when Aila's drug money is stolen and her father Joseph returns from prison, the precarious balance of Aila's world is destroyed. Her only options are to run or fight.
