Film Screening of "Beyond Standing Rock", a highly acclaimed film that investigates the collision of energy development and tribal rights/sovereignty. The film masterfully explores these issues through three different tribal stories: The Dakota Access Pipeline (Standing Rock Sioux), the Southern Ute Tribe energy development, and a coalition of tribes in the Four Corners region, fighting for control over the Bears Ears National Monument.
A short film called "Salmon Will Run" will also be shown. It is produced with Nahko Bear, a native musician from Portland and highlights the efforts by the Winnemem Wintu to restore salmon to the McCloud River.
A discussion of local indigenous community issues and ways non-native allies can help will be led by tribal leaders immediately following the films.
This is the third film in a three-part series that has been offered on the 4th Wednesday of June, July, and August: Topics in this series include climate change; the fashion industry; and indigenous rights. Each film will be accompanied by discussions led by local experts and there will be tabling with information from local advocacy groups. Delicious snacks will be available (Free Will Donations).
