In support of a documentary called End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock, there will be a benefit screening of feature film She Sings to the Stars on Friday, December 16 at 6:20PM at the Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe.
End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock is the incredible story of a group of indigenous women willing to risk their lives to stop the Dakota Access oil pipeline construction that would desecrate their ancient burial and prayer sites and threaten their land, water and very existence. "The ancestors warned against 'the black snake' that will come to poison Mother Earth".
But there was another prophecy, too: "The women, as the guardians of the waters and protectors of all life, will rise."
After the screening of She Sings to the Stars, End of the Line producer Pearl Daniel-Means will speak about Standing Rock, prophecy and the necessity for the feminine to reclaim its place on Earth, followed by the screening of a compilation of excerpts from End of the Line. All proceeds will go toward funding the production of this new film.
Pearl Daniel-Means is a Diné activist and author who speaks around the world on matters concerning indigenous issues, human rights, and environmentalism. She worked closely with her husband, the late Russell Means, the Oglala Lakota Sioux leader who is regarded as one of the most influential Native American activists and political leaders of our time.
Dine' singer/songwriter, Clara Natonabah will offer sacred songs.
Benefit Ticket Price: $15
