The Eagle and The Condor–From Standing Rock with Love

 

October 8, 2018

Map of Turtle IslandThe Augsburg Native American Film Series invites you to join us for the international opening of The Eagle and The Condor–From Standing Rock with Love. Our evening event will include a virtual introduction from the filmmaker (Kahstosera’a Paulette Moore), a global broadcast to supporters like the Augsburg Native American Film Series, and stories from students, alumni and community members who participated in the fight against DAPL.  We look forward to hearing your memories of Standing Rock as part of our conversation after the film.

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.

From 2016 – 2017 Standing Rock water protection camps located at the heart of Turtle Island became the largest assembly of Indigenous peoples in recent history. 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.

Directed by Kahstosera’a Paulette Moore, Produced by Rebecca Kemble.  The film also features: Seneca Nation’s Onödowá’ga:’ Protectors and singers (Darelyn Spruce, Nicky Thompson, Robin Jones, Jason Corwin, Kyle Spruce, Lor Seneca); pediatrician Dr. Sara Juanita Jumping Eagle (Dakota/Lakota-Standing Rock); Canupa (Pipe) carrier Grandmother Theresa Black Owl (Singugu/Rosebud); oil pipeline activist, economist and author Winona LaDuke (Ojibwe); independent journalist Jenni Monet (Laguna Pueblo); Wisconsin alderperson Rebecca Kemble; traditional dancers Helga and Jose Garza (Azteca); investigative journalist Will Parrish; water protector/builder Brennon “Bravo1” Nastacio (San Felipe Pueblo, Zuni Pueblo); traditional dancer Adriana Betti and the Cuautli Mitotiani Mexica Group; and lawyer and activist Germaine Tremell (Dakota/Lakota–Standing Rock).
