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), broadcast globally 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 features stories of how and why Indigenous people are rising up in powerful stands against an extractive over-culture that threatens to ruin our physical, spiritual, economic and cultural lives.   It is set in the historic unification of Indigenous nations at Standing Rock 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.   Directed by Kahstosera’a Paulette Moore, Produced by Rebecca Kemble.

Between 2016/17 Moore made six trips to Standing Rock protection action sites to cover the largest gathering of Indigenous people in recent history.
