Bay Native Circle – March 14, 2012

Mark Anquoe (Kiowa) hosts a fascinating group discussion about the common struggles and comparable histories faced by Indigenous Peoples in the US and Russia, especially regarding sacred sites. He is joined live in the studio by Danil Mamyev, renowned Indigenous activist, guardian of the sacred Krakol Valley and founder of the Uch Enmek Nature Park from the Altai Republic in central Russia and Caleen Sisk, Chief and Spiritual Leader of the Winnemem Wintu People of the McCloud River in Northern California. Both are featured in the upcoming four part documentary film series Standing on Sacred Ground directed by award-winning filmmaker and director of the Sacred Lands Film Project, Christopher Toby McLeod, who also comments on having dedicated his life to documenting these struggles. Also, Native community organizer Wiyaka Chasing Hawk (Lakota) talks about the Red Horse Youth Culture Camp on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota. With music by Sizzortail and the Redstone Singers of Oklahoma.
