From Standing Rock to Herring Rock: Protecting the Sacred (Jan 10 Sitka AK)

  • Sheet'ka Kwaan Naa Kahidi 200 Kaltian Street Sitka, Alaska 99835 (map)

Join the Herring Rock Water Protectors and the Sitka Health Summit Historical Trauma Working Group for a screening of "Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock," a story of Native-led defiance of the Dakota Access Pipeline, followed by the locally-produced "A Herring Opera," which explores the connections and conflicts between humans, nature and technology during the herring sac roe fishery. The films will be followed by a short community discussion of the connections between colonization, resource management, and historical trauma. 

This event is free and open to all! However, we will be accepting donations to help cover travel costs for Native elders for the upcoming Herring Koo.eex'! We hope to see you there!
