Join Holocaust Museum Houston in celebration of Indigenous Heritage Month as we feature artists, scholars, and films that pay tribute to Indigenous Peoples' ancestry and traditions worldwide. Our final event highlighting Indigenous narratives features a virtual screening of "The Condor & The Eagle" by filmmakers, Sophie and Clément Guerra.

Film Synopsis: 
This unique award-winning documentary film of global reach brings to light the interconnected nature of social issues such as gender, race, class and the environment. "The Condor & The Eagle" helps us understand how social, environmental and political identities combine to create specific modes of discrimination and privilege.

Indigenous communities are Earth global environmental leaders. Statistics show that Indigenous peoples represent only 4% of the world’s population, live on 22% of the earth’s surface, holding 80% of the remaining biodiversity.

"The Condor & The Eagle" is deeply empowering: the story starts small with local impacted marginalized individuals who decide to no longer accept to be the victims of an unjust system. Overcoming the feeling of isolation, they manage to grow regional support networks, progressively gaining national visibility. Eventually, they rise as international leaders taking the fight from the streets to the courts (Tribunals, Consultations and Reforms) and inspire others to help change our system’s architecture.

This film will be screened in English with Spanish subtitles. Admission is free and open to the public. Donations are welcomed. Advanced registration is required to receive the private Zoom link.
