Koo (Serpent) directed by Nicolás Rojas Sánchez (Mixtec)
The date 11 death (Year 10 flint), 9 Serpent ‘Eagle Fire’ entered to the temazcal determined to fulfill his last assignment.
The Peace Pipeline, directed by Gitz Crazyboy, Tito Ybarra & Keil Orion Troisi (Dene, Blackfoot / Cree)
Comedians and activists Gitz Crazyboy and Tito Ybarra pose as a indigenous energy company sharing plans to reroute Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline through the wealthy white suburbs of Duluth, MN, to more fairly share the risks oil pipelines bring to indigenous lands—with shocking and hilarious results.
HipBeat, directed by Samuel Kay Forrest (Cherokee)
A young political activist embarks on a journey of self-discovery while searching for love and anarchy within Berlin’s colourful queer community.
The second online program begins at 7:00pm with the following film:
Systemic Injustice, directed by Brad Gerard Gallant (Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation)
Indigenous Mascots are a celebration of North American Indigenous genocide. The persistence of Indigenous Mascots indicates that both Canada and the US are unwilling to come to terms with the criminal actions of their past, the tenuous nature of human rights, and the threat of white supremacy to democracy. Through the documentary and the perspective of my activism, I am trying to understand the forces that allow Indigenous Mascots to persist and the damage caused by mainstream sport racism.
