October 8, 2018 THE EAGLE AND THE CONDOR–FROM STANDING ROCK WITH LOVE
This special screening of The Eagle and The Condor–From Standing Rock with Love, a film about how and why Indigenous people are standing up against a violent extraction-culture, will air internationally on Indigenous People’s Day. The Augsburg Native American Film Series is part of a group of 20 institutions simultaneously screening the film, virtually connecting with the filmmaker, and providing institution specific programming around this innovative project. At Augsburg, in addition to the screening, we will highlight student, alumn, and community stories of activism and participation at Standing Rock against DAPL. We look forward to hearing your memories of Standing Rock as part of our conversation after the film.
