Info about projection
Woven through a compelling series of portraits of Indigenous leaders from all continents making presentations at the United Nations, EARTH WISDOM FOR A WORLD IN CRISIS follows the Lakota Sioux’s non-violent resistance at the Standing Rock Reservation, where thousands of water protectors and military veterans joined forces to create what has become a high water mark in Native people’s historic struggle for land rights. Through the unique prism of indigenous cosmologies and native perspectives EARTH WISDOM FOR A WORLD IN CRISIS weaves a vivid contrast between the bureaucratic, slow-moving “recognition” of indigenous peoples by the United Nations, and the political immediacy of the Dakota Access Pipeline protest movement.
