Compass for 9/18/21

In this special edition of the Compass, we with Shannon Kring, director of End of the LIne: The Women of Standing Rock, selected for screening at this year’s 22nd Annual Port Townsend Film festival. Shannon and her crew have woven together a significant chronicle of the grass roots movement that arose after it was announced that the Dakota Access Pipeline would be routed through the land of the indigenous people of South Dakota. The film tells the story of the five brave women who started it all, with four Mongolian yurts and four families camped on the grasslands overlooking the proposed pipeline route, as workers moved closer to the sacred sites of Lakota territory and the banks of the Missouri River.
