Meaningful Movies Bellevue and The Condor and The Eagle – By Lynn Roesch

by March 30, 2021 0

On Tuesday, March 23, 2021, the Meaningful Movies Bellevue group teamed up with Mt. Baker Meaningful Movies and Meaningful Movies Port Townsend to present The Condor and The Eagle to an audience of 69 people! A lively discussion followed the screening. Incredibly beautiful scenes and four inspiring Indigenous women taught us about their work to develop the global rise of land and water protectors across the Americas. These four women, from different impacted communities, embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Canadian Boreal forests to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of climate justice. The Condor and The Eagle documents these leaders as they travel through the jungle on an unexpectedly challenging and liberating journey that forever changes their attachment to the Earth and one another. The Condor and The Eagle was directed by Sophie and Clement Guerra.

There are many ways in which you can support the efforts of the Indigenous people of your area. If you are in Seattle – which is home to the first Meaningful Movies group in Wallingford; or Bellevue – which is the home of the Meaningful Movies group that organized this screening; then please consider supporting the Duwamish People through the Real Rent Duwamish campaign. See below for more details:

What is Real Rent?

Real Rent calls on people who live and work in Seattle to make rent payments to the Duwamish Tribe.

Though the city named for the Duwamish leader Chief Seattle thrives:

The Tribe has yet to be justly compensated for their land, resources, and livelihood.

You can do something today to stand in solidarity with First Peoples of this land by paying Real Rent.
All funds go directly to Duwamish Tribal Services (DTS) to support the revival of Duwamish culture and the vitality of the Duwamish Tribe.
