"The River Cried, "Mni W'Coni" Documentary on Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Join Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum as we present a dynamc film, "The River Cried, "Mni W'Coni", a deeply personal, and emotionally evocative testimony, touching upon subjects of genocide, beauty, and love; found while serving to protect the water, on the front lines, in Standing Rock, North Dakota, in the Autumn of 2016. 
Jehann El-Bisi, was inspired by her mother, descendant of Lakota, and a tireless activist for water protection, at an early age. She felt spiritually called to revisit those lessons, and commitments, to protect people, and the water, at the cost of one's life if necessary. Art Desmarais, a U.S. Army Veteran, shared the transformational experience with Jehann, by standing with the people, to serve to protect the water, in Standing Rock. The film is an invitation to explore some of the messages given by the Lakota people, as guiding principals, in an age of struggle for sustainability, environmental justice, and decolonization. 
Wopila Tanka!
