Join us for a film screening of The Eagle and the Condor: From Standing Rock With Love. Filmmaker Kahsto’serakwathe Paulette Moore will be present for questions and discussion following the screening. Moore is an independent filmmaker and artist who has worked with the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, PBS, ABC, and other media outlets. Between 2016 and 2017, Moore made six trips to Standing Rock to document the largest gathering of indigenous people in modern history. Moore is Kanien’keháka (Mohawk) and an enrolled member of Six Nations of the Grand River territory.
The Eagle and the Condor documents how gathered nations confronted big energy’s extreme extraction through the strength of their ceremonies, histories, and connections. Despite being met with violence, many who brought their best intentions to this historic fight continue to expand their love and sovereignty – while they shift our world away from the trauma and isolation of modern days. The film is based around prophecy of the Eagle and Condor that originates with nations from the South and features ceremony held at the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) site on Indigenous People’s Day, October 10th, 2016. The ancient prophecy predicted the epic Standing Rock water protection actions – and continues to challenge all to identify and unite our gifts and power.
