The Condor and the Eagle are beautiful, strong birds whose soaring flight paths bring them high into the sky where they are said to carry messages to the Creator/God who lives there. There is a prophecy that says that when the Condor of the South and the Eagle of the North fly together in the same skies, then it will also be a time for humanity to awaken and come together and work as one, for the good of the planet. The Legacy of Hope Foundation and KAIROS Canada have come together to present a special screening of the Condor and the Eagle to stand in solidarity with the Indigenous Peoples in defending the planet, Mother Earth.
This is an important film that delivers a message that if we choose to continue on our current path, the rampant consumption of the earth’s resources will destroy the planet. We have a chance to learn what the Condor can teach the Eagle about existing on the earth without destroying the planet. Please join us in watching this special screening of the Condor and the Eagle to learn what is being done to disrupt the oil industry and to listen to Indigenous voices as they rally to save our planet.
This screening is an opportunity for KAIROS Canada and the Legacy of Hope Foundation to come together in support of Indigenous Peoples across Turtle Island. This event is inclusive, free to those who can't afford it. For all others, except for students who are not expected to donate, suggested donations on a sliding scale of $15-100 are requested in lieu of a flat ticket price. Our hope is that the film will speak to you and inspire you to allyship and awareness. Your donations will support our organizations and the work that we do for ecological justice, human rights, and educating and fostering Reconciliation to create just and equal relationships among all Peoples. Part of the funds collected will also support the film impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities" and be used to provide small honorariums to our panelists.
