In celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day, we present a public screening and discussion of "Eagle and Condor," a documentary by director Paulette Moore. The film features stories of how and why Indigenous people are rising to powerfully stand against an extractive overculture that threatens to ruin their physical, spiritual, economic and cultural lives. The film is set in the historic unification of Indigenous nations at Standing Rock protection actions in 2016-2017, when the Lakota people reignited their Seven-Council-Fire and where Central and South American nations, represented by the condor, joined forces with their North American brothers and sisters, symbolized by the eagle.
The film will begin at 7:00 and run for approximately one hour. Before and after the screening (technology permitting), we will be able to connect to other viewing parties across the country and to the filmmaker for a short discussion.
