Augsburg Native American Film Series Event! October 8, 2018
Please 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 our students and community members who participated in the fight against DAPL. We look forward to hearing your stories 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.
