Indigenous Peoples’ Day Film Screening and Discussion
@ McCormick Foundation Center
1870 Campus Dr Evanston, IL 60208
Opening Monday, October 8th, from 6PM - 9PM
The 2015 Dakota Access Pipeline protests resonated with Native people across the country, including here In the Chicago area. So what lies ahead?
Join us for an event intended to promote continued conversations about environmental issues affecting both urban and reservation communities. The screening of the film, The Eagle and the Condor, is a way to promote Indigenous solidarity and a springboard for discussion about issues facing Native people in the Great Lakes region. Whether you’re interested in urban issues like housing and access to healthy foods or want to support reservation-based communities that face mining, industrial farming and other threats, come join the conversation and be part of a national dialogue.
Northwestern’s Center for Native American and Indigenous Research will be hosting a premiere screening of the film The Eagle and The Condor – From Standing Rock With Love, with a discussion afterward connecting in real time via Facebook Live with other organizations and communities nationwide on Indigenous People’s Day – Monday October 8th on Free Speech TV and in communities across Turtle Island, the U.S., Canada and Europe.
This event is co-sponsored by The American Indian Center of Chicago, The Mitchell Museum, St. Kateri Center of Chicago, Chi-Nations Youth Council and Northwestern’s Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion and Multicultural Student Affairs.
