Film: The Condor and the Eagle
Four Indigenous leaders 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 & 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.

This panel conversation brings together UGA graduate students whose life experiences and academic work speak to the complex transnational coalitions addressed in "The Condor and the Eagle": From Indigenous women in Ecuador protecting community water systems, to urban native resistance to climate apartheid in North America, to the intimate connections between housing justice and climate justice, this conversation brings a critical geography lens to transnational movements for land, water, and home.
Featuring UGA graduate students: Estefanía Palacios, Maya Henderson, and Jessica Martínez. Facilitated by Vanessa Raditz. Please email any questions to email@example.com.
