The climate crisis is not paused while we battle Covid-19, and we must support and learn from those at the front line of the struggle for climate justice. Environmental racism presents a deadly parallel threat for Indigenous peoples who continue to defend the lands and waters to protect their communities from extraction and the pandemic.
In solidarity with front-line defenders, we are proud to host an online screening of the award-winning documentary The Condor and the Eagle —cited by EcoWatch as one of the best new documentaries about global warming.
A powerful documentary film by Sophie and Clément Guerra showcasing a truly inclusive global warming movement led by the most impacted, The Condor and The Eagle reminds us of our deep interconnectedness with the Earth and one another.
The film follows four Indigenous leaders embarking on an extraordinary transcontinental adventure from the Canadian Boreal forests to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of "climate justice.”
This powerful documentary offers a glimpse into a developing spiritual renaissance as the protagonists learn from each other's long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy. From forgotten voices to influential leaders, they have struggled with feelings of isolation their entire lives and are now discovering the power of their shared voices to bring change to the whole world.
Join us on Sunday, October 18th, for an online film screening and a live discussion. We will hear from the protagonists of the film, film directors as well as Indigenous land defenders and water protectors like: Casey Camp-Horinek , Hereditary Drumkeeper of the Women's Scalp Dance Society of the Ponca Nation of Oklahoma; Bryan Parras , one of the film’s protagonists—Xicano Houston, TX—Healthy Communities organizer with Sierra Club and Co-Founder of t.e.j.a.s ; Tara Houska —Couchiching First Nation Anishinaabe. Tara is a tribal attorney, founder of Giniw Collective and a former advisor on Native American affairs to Bernie Sanders; Edgar Villanueva —Lumbee Tribe, North Carolina—a racial justice activist philanthropist and author of Decolonizing Wealth . He is also the founder of Decolonizing Wealth Project and Liberated Capital and is a current Atlantic Fellow for Racial Equity.
Access to the online screening is by donation on a sliding scale. All funds donated from ticket sales will support the film impact campaign No More Sacrificed Communities and Liberated Capital: A Decolonizing Wealth Fund . This fund aims to support Indigenous and other people-of-color-led initiatives working for transformative social change.
