Black Mountain Circle Presents Standing on Sacred Ground: Profit & Loss Toby McLeod & Melissa Nelson
May 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT
~Co-sponsored by Sacred Land Film Project~ Indigenous communities around the world and in the U.S. are resisting threats to their sacred places—the original protected lands—in a growing movement to defend human rights and restore the environment. Standing on Sacred Ground is a four-part documentary series where native people share ecological wisdom and spiritual reverence while battling government mega-projects, consumer culture, and resource extraction as well as competing religions and climate change. This series exposes threats to native peoples’ health, livelihood, and cultural survival in eight communities around the world. Rare verité scenes of tribal life allow indigenous people to tell their own stories—and confront us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption. Cost: $20-$30 sliding scale; Free for students
