Welcome to the Augsburg Native American Film Series! This season is full of variety and charged with energy. Join us for film events focused on ceremony, activism, and cultural history. We will update the site throughout the season with details and specific pages for each event. Keep Coming Back!
October 8, 2018 THE EAGLE AND THE CONDOR–FROM STANDING ROCK WITH LOVE
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.
This special event will take place internationally on Indigenous People’s Day as institutions and community groups simultaneously screen the film, virtually connect with the filmmaker (Kahstosera’a Paulette Moore) and provide institution specific programming. At Augsburg, in addition to the screening, we will highlight student and community stories of activism and participation at Standing Rock. We look forward to hearing your memories of Standing Rock as part of our conversation after the film.
