Water Protectors: The Standing Rock Camps through the Lens of
Gabriel Ayala
Presentation, Performance, and Photography Exhibit
Friday, January 12, 11:00 am

Classical guitarist Gabriel Ayala, a member of the Pascua Yaqui tribe, has traveled the world performing and teaching. When he heard about the events taking place near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, Ayala decided to stand with the Water Protectors, a group of predominately Indigenous community members who opposed the construction of a petroleum pipeline. 

Ayala was forever changed by his time at the Standing Rock Camps. His photographs, on exhibit at Amerind, document his experiences at the camps. Ayala will talk about these experiences and will perform his award-winning classical music.

Post-film Q&A with director Myron Dewey.

“A lesson in resistance … an evocative wake-up call told as a visual poem.” – Jude Dry, Indiewire

Standing Rock North Dakota became one of the most watched places on earth. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe captured world attention through their peaceful resistance.

While many may know the details, the compelling new documentary, Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock, captures the story of Native-led defiance that forever changed how we fight for clean water, our environment and the future of our planet.

Myron Dewey’s drone footage made him one of the most important journalistic voices to come out of the Standing Rock movement. Founder and owner of Digital Smoke Signals, Dewey is Newe-Numah/ Paiute-Shoshone from the Walker River Paiute Tribe, Agui Diccutta Band (Trout Eaters) and Temoke Shoshone. He is a professor, filmmaker/editor, digital storyteller, historical trauma trainer, drone operator, and journalist. Digital Smoke Signal’s goal is to help bridge the digital divide throughout Indian Country and indigenize media through indigenous eyes with cultural core values (Culture, Reciprocity, Respect and Family).

Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock (Heard Museum Screening) (Nov 14- Phoenix AZ)

Myron Dewey (Newe-Numah/Paiute-Shoshone), a filmmaker, activist, journalist and educator, is the featured speaker in the fall 2017 Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community. The series features two screenings of Dewey's film, "Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock": the first on Monday, November 13 at Sun Devil Marketplace/College Ave. Commons, 660 South College Avenue in Tempe and the second on Tuesday, November 14 at the Heard Museum, 2301 North Central Avenue in Phoenix. Both events begin with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by the film at 6:45 p.m. Dewey will be present for a Q & A after the screenings, which are free of charge and open to the public.

Dewey is from the Walker River Paiute Tribe, Agui Diccutta Band (Trout Eaters) on his father’s side and Bishop Paiute Tribe on his mother’s side. He is founder and owner of Digital Smoke Signals, a social media and film company. He holds AA and BS degrees from Haskell Indian Nations University and an MA from the University of Kansas.

"Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock," which Dewey co-directed with Josh Fox and James Spione, chronicles the #NoDAPL peaceful protests on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2017, the film has been called “powerful” by the Hollywood Reporter and “an evocative wake-up call told as a visual poem” by IndieWire. Awake does not follow a single protagonist but instead forms a “pastiche” of narrative, mostly indigenous, voices. Dewey’s drone footage adds both immediacy and perspective, making him “one of the most closely followed journalists to come out of the movement” (IndieWire). For Dewey’s work, Awake won the Special Founders Prize for Citizen Journalism at the 2017 Traverse City Film Festival, which was founded by legendary documentarian Michael Moore.

The Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community at Arizona State University addresses topics and issues across disciplines in the arts, humanities, sciences, and politics. Underscoring Indigenous American experiences and perspectives, this series seeks to create and celebrate knowledge that evolves from an inclusive Indigenous worldview and that is applicable to all walks of life.

ASU sponsors include the American Indian Studies Program, ASU Library, Department of English, Labriola National American Indian Data Center, Office of American Indian Initiatives, and Red Ink Initiative. The Heard Museum is a community partner.

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!
Apr
24
to May 5

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration

After all, science is a method designed to remove bias and identify a greater truth. We all benefit from scientific advancements. We all learn from experience. From curious children, to backyard birders, student researchers to members of government agencies, we are all scientists! On Earth Day we will march in solidarity for the kind of inquiry that promotes healthier ecosystems and healthier communities. We march to promote unity and reasoned discourse. We march in celebration of the diverse array of lab and field scientists, as well as students and laypersons, who contribute to the progress of human understanding in the White Mountains of Arizona.

Native Nations March On Washington DC - Phoenix

"The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Indigenous grassroots leaders call on our allies across the United States and around the world to peacefully March on Washington DC. We ask that you rise in solidarity with the Indigenous peoples of the world whose rights protect Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth) for the future generations of all.

Standing Rock and Native Nations will lead a march in prayer and action in Washington D.C. on March 10th 2017.

For those who cannot march with us, we ask that you take peaceful action at home in your tribal nations, states, cities, towns, villages and provinces.

Who We Are //
We are Tribal Nations and grassroots Indigenous communities rising to the call set forth by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to defend our inherent rights to protect Unci Maka and our water: Mni Wiconi.

March is being organized by the Native Nations Rise Planning Committee

Our Demands //
#TakeTheMeeting // President Trump must meet with tribal leaders to hear why it’s critical that the US government respect tribal rights. This administration must work with us.

#ConsentNotConsultation // Tribal interests cannot continue to be marginalized in favor of the interests of corporations and other governments. Consultation is not enough– we must require consent.

#NativeNationsRise // The Standing Rock movement is bigger than one tribe. It has evolved into a powerful global phenomenon highlighting the necessity to respect Indigenous Nations and their right to protect their homelands, environment and future generations. We are asking our Native relatives from across Turtle Island to rise with us.

Calendar of Events
March 7 – 9 // Native leaders and their allies will lobby in the halls of power in Washington DC on behalf of the protection of all Tribes.

March 10 // Native peoples + their allies – gathering in thousands – will gather for a March from the Mall to the White House beginning at 10am. After the march, we will gather for a rally at the Ellipse. It is here we will make our demands to the new administration." - Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
