*We will share and process our emotional reactions to the film. (Partly based on Joanna Macy’s work, “The Work That Reconnects”)

Proceeds go directly to Pauline Whitesinger, a Dine elder who recently had four of her cows impounded by Hopi Rangers

For more information:

In 1974 the US Congress passed Public Law 93-351 requiring the forced relocation of over 14,000 Dine and a hundred plus Hopi from their ancestral homelands in Northern Arizona as a way to obtain easier access to strip-mine one of the largest coal reserves in North America. The families on Black Mesa are in their fourth decade resisting this illegal bill and are asking for outside supporters to help them continue their traditional life-ways in the face of government harassment, energy exploitation, ecological destruction, and cultural degradation.
