Defend The Sacred || Behind The Scenes

IN SEPTEMBER OF 2016, I HAD THE OPPORTUINTY TO VISIT AND DOCUMENT THE POWERFUL #NODAPL MOVEMENT AT THE STANDING ROCK SIOUX RESERVATION NEAR CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA. 

 

"DEFEND THE SACRED" IS A SHORT DOCUMENTARY THAT I FILMED FROM MY TIME AT THE OCETI SAKOWIN CAMP.

IT IS A HONEST TESTAMENT TO WHAT INDIGENOUS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN BELIEVING AND DEFENDING FOR OVER HUNDREDS OF YEARS. 

THIS DOCUMENTARY WAS MY ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE THE TRUE HEART AND SOUL OF WHO THESE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE are, THAT HAVE come to stand TOGETHER AS ONE. 

 DEFENDING WHAT IS STILL SACRED...WHILE LIVING IN A MODERN WORLD.
