The Condor and the Eagle (Movie Screening + Q&A)
Time & Location
About the Event
The June Green Series presented by Brooklyn Public Library's BPL Presents features a screening and discussion of The Condor & the Eagle.
The Condor and the Eagle documents the stories of four well-known Native environmental spokespeople who are at the forefront of a perspective shift in the identity of their people, from forgotten voices to powerful and 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 entire world.
Clement Guerra is the film's director who will be in discussion after the screening with Casey Camp-Horinek, a protaganist in the film. Because of Casey’s work the Ponca Nation is the first Tribe in the State of Oklahoma to adopt the Rights of Nature Statute, and to pass a moratorium on Fracking on Tribal Lands. Casey was also instrumental in the drafting, and adoption of the first ever International Indigenous Women’s Treaty protecting the Rights of Nature.
