Environmental History reviews AWAKE

Academic Journal Review by Nick Estes

For many that were at Standing Rock during the protest encampment, it's hard to describe the duality of daily life. It was beautiful in that it allowed us to reimagine freedom, but it was also met with state repression. In his review of our film, Nick Estes (Lower Brule Sioux Tribe) beautifully describes this complexity and how it informed AWAKE. In his own words, "Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock is more than a documentary; it is a jarring dream sequence, a cinematic poem of juxtaposed images and scenes of life and violence that defined the months-long Indigenous-led protest against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) north of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation."

AWAKE to be featured in KIPCOR Film Series

Upcoming Event

AWAKE, A Dream From Standing Rock will be featured in Kansas Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution's Film Series on January 14th, 2018 at 3pm! The event is at Krehbiel Auditorium in the Luyken Fine Arts Center on campus in collaboration with the Mennonite Central Committee. Bethel College's KIPCOR is one of the oldest regional peace institutes in the United States and focuses on conflict resolution and peacebuilding at many scales - both local and global. Part of their programming is an annual film series that brings independent films that center on social or political justice to North Newton. All of us here at AWAKE are happy to be included in this series! Journalist and AWAKE Director Myron Dewey will join KIPCOR for this screening and a Q&A session.

Filmmaker Doug Good Feather and Lakota Way Healing Center Hold Coat Drive

For those of us here at AWAKE, our communities mean everything to us. They teach us who we are, they care for us when we have trouble caring for ourselves, and they give us strength. That's why it's so important that we are active and thoughtful members of our communities. Recently, filmmaker Doug Good Feather, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, held a coat drive and holiday dinner through the Lakota Way Healing Center in Denver, CO! He later took the coats and toys gathered back up to Standing Rock for distribution. Doug and everyone at the Lakota Way Healing Center work tirelessly to help heal and build with the people of Denver. To learn more about LWHC and to find out how you can help, please visit their Facebook page or their website!

AWAKE Screened As NAHM Keynote Event

Past Event

November is nationally-recognized as Native American Heritage Month, celebrating the history and traditions of indigenous people! During this exciting time we got to visit Colorado State University, where AWAKE was screening as the NAHM Keynote Event. Held in partnership with CSU's Native American Cultural Center, 300 students, faculty, and activists attended the screening and Q&A session with Floris White Bull and Doug Good Feather. This was one of NACC's most attended events and was even featured on the front page of the Rocky Mountain Collegian!
