About the event
In 2020, it’s fitting that the theme of World Water Day is Water and Climate. According to the International Panel on Climate Change, we have just over nine years to limit climate catastrophe.
Indigenous communities and organizers have been saying this for years. Indigenous land and water defenders have been at the forefront of the fight against major extractive projects that are threatening our lakes, rivers and oceans, pushing us further towards the brink of climate catastrophe. Currently, all eyes are on the Wet’suwet’en Nation as they protect their land and water against the Coastal GasLink pipeline and continue their way of life. As Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island stand in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en, settlers have the opportunity and responsibility to support the struggle.
SCIC is honored to share the opportunity to share The Condor & The Eagle film screening. The Condor & the Eagle tells a story of Indigenous leaders embarking on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Canadian Boreal forests to deep into the heart of the Amazon jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America - the Indigenous prophecy of the Condor and the Eagle.
We hope the film will inspire you to follow the call to action from Indigenous communities and take tangible action to protect our water and climate. We invite you to stay after the film for a panel discussion, to continue the conversation and to learn more about how you can support local climate justice work.
