UU Ministry for Earth hosted an online water ceremony with special guest Casey Camp-Horinek (Ponca Nation). Casey is a grandmother and climate justice movement leader, dedicated to protecting and restoring Indigenous lifeways and the Rights of Nature.

The water ceremony was followed by a screening of The Condor & The Eagle. Casey is a lead protagonist in the film, and it is a profound blessing that she can be with us to observe World Water Day!

This screening was the opening witness and celebration for UU Ministry for Earth’s Spring for Change: A Season of Sacred Activism program (March 22- May 22).

There was a requested $10-50 sliding scale donation that will benefit the film’s impact campaign, the UU Create Climate Justice initiative’s Indigenous frontline solidarity efforts, and Casey Camp-Horinek’s work to recognize the Rights of Nature. Donations can be paid online now, during, or after the event —

About the Film

Watch the trailer:

Four Indigenous environmental leaders embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Boreal forest 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 & The Eagle documentary offers a glimpse into a developing spiritual renaissance as the film’s four protagonists learn from each other’s long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy. Their path through the jungle takes them on an unexpectedly challenging and liberating journey, which will forever change their attachment to the Earth and one another.

The Condor & The Eagle premiered in October 2019 at the Woodstock Film Festival, was selected by 28 world-renowned film festivals and has won 8 awards so far including:
