RISE: A Story of Indigenous Resistance

  • 780 Del Monte Lane Reno, NV, 89511 United States (map)

Thousands of water protectors have descended into Standing Rock to stand in solidarity and protect ancestral burial sites from the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

We will be screening an episode from VICELAND’S new series RISE. In this episode titled, Red Power: Standing Rock Part II, Indigenous youth from all over North America are taking part in the protection of water and sacred resources. This generation of people who grew up hearing their parent’s stories of occupation— from Wounded Knee to Alcatraz— are fighting this battle using prayer and peaceful, non-violent direct action. 

After the documentary screening, we will have a panel discussion with local water protectors who have stood on the frontlines in North Dakota. 

**Snacks and drinks will be available during the event
