In a time when basically every news broadcast includes some form of Occupy coverage it seems that all angles have been covered. Not quite. The Occupy movement has transcended cultural, age, and race barriers. The Native American community is no exception to this movement. The First Voices Indigenous Radio and the Epifaneo Collective have organized a touring event, The Resistance Solidarity Gathering.
The famous Native Warrior, Crazy Horse, predicted that “the Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world. A world filled with broken promises, selfishness and separations. A world longing for light again.” In support of this statement, and the sentiments of the Lakota people this event will include a screening of the film Crying Earth Rise Up, musical performances, and discussion of the Native stance on the Occupy movement.
The event, open to the public, will be held on Friday, November 18, from 6-9 p.m. at the Tribeca Stage, 56 Walker St. This will be a unique opportunity to discuss new viewpoints on the way commercialism has affected mother earth, and what Occupy is doing to help.
