Grebel is co-hosting the Waterloo film premiere of The Eagle and the Condor - From Standing Rock with Love with the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre at St. Paul's University College.
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. 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.
This film will be followed by a discussion with Film Director Kahsto'sera'a Paulette Moore.
