Join us for a screening of the new film The Eagle and the Condor: From Standing Rock with Love from Director Kahsto'sera'a Paulette Moore.
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, knowledge 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.

Co-presented by SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement and Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival.
