WATER STORIES SCREENING
Saturday April 8th 6-8PM
People of this sovereign nation have created a home for all that visited and chose to stand with their commitment to stop the DAPL pipeline efforts. Their efforts continue today as the pipeline is still not completed. Those that stood with Standing Rock have raised our awareness of the sacredness of water and the power of gathering together in changing colonizing attitudes and behavior.
Over the past months, many In Progress artists, friends and family members made the effort to travel and witness the Standing Rock movement. They came back to In Progress with stories of community and sharing and often a deeper appreciation of traditional values. These stories affected us, gave us hope, and opened our eyes to the sacrifices of all the water protectors at camp. The power of peacefully and prayerfully standing together in a unified message is what "Honoring the Protectors" exhibit series is about.
Please join In Progress as we acknowledge the experience of these travelers through their photo and video works, and continue the efforts to educate and raise awareness about Indigenous rights in the United States.
