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).
