The American Experience Finalist
Before the Portrait
Lila Chosa sits on the side porch of her house while her family and friend get ready for a portrait behind her. Lila's grandmother, Heart Warrior, has spent years battling to keep custody of her grandchildren in Minnesota. It’s part of a long history of Native American removal and resistance.
