AWAKE Announces Youth Media Fellowship

We Have Some Exciting News!!

Are you or someone close to you a young indigenous person interested in media, journalism, and storytelling? We want YOU to join us!

The creators of AWAKE, A Dream From Standing Rock have come together to create the AWAKE Media Fellowship!!

Native communities all too often have not had control of their own narratives and we need Indigenous voices telling Indigenous stories. At AWAKE Media, we envision a world where the youth have the resources and tools necessary to tell their stories of resistance and cultural engagement. Our goal is to train and engage native youth in new schools of media and storytelling, bringing light to frontline communities and aiding the creation of new media content in every shape, size and format imaginable.

The Media Fellowship is a week-long training summit in camerawork, editing, storytelling, leadership, and healing in the Delaware River Basin area of Pennsylvania, including a day trip to New York City, with award winning journalists and filmmakers followed by a year of close mentorship where we help fellows develop a media series or film.

So if you are interested or know someone who is, please click here for a copy of the application and be sure to submit by May 5th!

We know that these stories and talent exist – we want to help them flourish.

Environmental History reviews AWAKE

Academic Journal Review by Nick Estes

For many that were at Standing Rock during the protest encampment, it's hard to describe the duality of daily life. It was beautiful in that it allowed us to reimagine freedom, but it was also met with state repression. In his review of our film, Nick Estes (Lower Brule Sioux Tribe) beautifully describes this complexity and how it informed AWAKE. In his own words, "Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock is more than a documentary; it is a jarring dream sequence, a cinematic poem of juxtaposed images and scenes of life and violence that defined the months-long Indigenous-led protest against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) north of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation."

French Parliament Bans Fracking In All Territories

Bans oil and gas extraction by 2040

On December 19th, members of France's parliament voted to ban all production of oil and gas by 2040!! President Emmanuel Macron has positioned his administration towards renewables and aims to switch away from fossil fuels. While this is an amazing measure, it's important to remember that France remains 99% dependent on important hydrocarbon gas liquids, which are found in natural gas and crude oil. Read more here!

Filmmaker Doug Good Feather and Lakota Way Healing Center Hold Coat Drive

For those of us here at AWAKE, our communities mean everything to us. They teach us who we are, they care for us when we have trouble caring for ourselves, and they give us strength. That's why it's so important that we are active and thoughtful members of our communities. Recently, filmmaker Doug Good Feather, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, held a coat drive and holiday dinner through the Lakota Way Healing Center in Denver, CO! He later took the coats and toys gathered back up to Standing Rock for distribution. Doug and everyone at the Lakota Way Healing Center work tirelessly to help heal and build with the people of Denver. To learn more about LWHC and to find out how you can help, please visit their Facebook page or their website!
