Cinema Politica Free Film Screening: Sacred Water:
Standing Rock Part 1

Sustainability Series

In this documentary screening, the people of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation of North and South Dakota are fighting to stop a pipeline from being built on their ancestral homeland. The Dakota Access Pipeline would snake its way across four states, bisecting sacred Indigenous sites and burial grounds along the route. The tribe fears that a leak could contaminate the Missouri River and spell disaster for the Great Sioux Nation. But water protectors are standing up in unprecedented numbers to preserve their way of life for future generations and to defend their Sacred Water.

Joining us for a post film discussion are Vanessa Dundon and Vana Dee Worthy, activists who have spent months protesting the pipeline at Standing Rock.
