Given the current state of our world, there has never been a more important time to let our voices rise to protect and preserve the land held sacred by others. Let’s join in this fight and celebrate indigenous cultures.

We are proud to present "AWAKE: A Dream from Standing Rock" by Academy Award nominees Josh Fox, James Spione, and Indigenous filmmaker Myron Dewey. The film tells the story of the #NODAPL Native-led resistance against the construction of the $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

The feature is supported by "Monster Slayer," a contemporary retelling of the Navajo hero twins story. Featuring local artist and activist Shonto Begay, the film has traveled throughout America and will return to the big screen in Flagstaff once again.

Local and national non-profits will be present at the event to educate about their current work.
