STANDING WITH INDIGENOUS RESISTANCE:
Across Turtle Island and Abiayala
Wednesday, April 21st at 4pm PT / 5MT / 6CT / 7pm ET
– PANEL DISCUSSION STARTS AT 8:30 pm ET – HERE
We welcome the University of North Texas community to this screening of the dynamic new documentary film, The Condor and the Eagle! The themes of this film—grassroots Indigenous women’s resistance to climate change and environmental injustice—dialogues with the research interests and justice commitments of many units and departments at our university, including the Departments of English, Women’s and Gender Studies, Philosophy and Religion, Geography and the Environment, Latina/o Mexican American Studies, History, Spanish, and Honors Hall. We also welcome the opportunity for two of our local grassroots leaders, Lane Barrett of the Native American Student Association and Josselyne Sibrian of the Latinx/Hispanic Student Union, to share how their local struggles on behalf of marginalized communities connect with the movements seen in the film.
Let’s gather to watch this film together and spark an ongoing dialogue across our campus centered on these vital issues!
This event is inclusive, free to those who can’t afford it. For all others, except for students who are not expected to donate, suggested donations on a sliding scale of $15-100 are requested in lieu of a flat ticket price. Donations will support the work of the Native American Students Association at the University of North Texas and the Latinx/Hispanic Student Union.
The donations collected will also support the film impact campaign “No More Sacrificed Communities” and be used to provide small honorariums to our panelists.
