Indigenous Rights and Just Transitions

Please join us on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at 10:00 AM (Arizona time) for the “Indigenous Rights and Just Transitions” Session of the Human Rights Film Festival! We will feature two films that tell the stories of five indigenous communities confronting the environmental and social consequences of extractive industry and fighting for alternatives. Award winning The Condor & The Eagle follows Indigenous environmental leaders from Texas, Canada, Ecuador, and Peru seeking to unite for the cause of “Climate Justice.” An ancient prophecy said that when the Eagle of North America and the Condor of South America unite, the spirit of peace would awaken. Now, indigenous activists are joining together to redefine a path of healing for all humans and Mother Earth. In Current Revolution: Nation in Transition, Award Winning Filmmaker Roger Sorkin explores the coal-to-renewables energy transition of the Navajo Nation, allowing workers and their communities, business and tribal leaders, utility executives, policy makers, and environmental activists tell the story of the possibilities of an alternative future. 

A panel discussion following the films will include two of the activists featured in the films –Casey Camp-Horinek, Environmental Ambassador and Hereditary Drumkeeper of the Womens' Scalp Dance Society of the Ponca Nation of Oklahoma, and Nicole Horseherder, Executive Director of To Nizhoni Ani (Sacred Water Speaks) – as well as Current Revolution Director, Roger Sorkin and ASU Emeritus Professor of Environmental Humanities, Paul Hirt. Attendees can participate in the discussion through the Q & A feature.

If you would like to join the session and gain invaluable insight into the fight for a more sustainable future through the eyes of Indigenous communities, please RSVP at this link.
