LN3 Film: Seven Teachings of the Anishinaabe in Resistance

Storytelling is intrinsically linked to social change. In just over 30 minutes, this documentary tells the story of activists, including Indigenous climate interveners, water protectors, and land defenders, who fought to protect their land from fossil fuel expansion. Thomas X, a Red Lake Ojibwe rapper and poet, drives the narration of the film with lessons from "7 Teachings," a song that highlights the importance of respect, truth, honesty, wisdom, humility, love, and courage. The film also includes dialogue with Indigenous activists Winona Laduke and Tara Houska, among many others. While the film focuses on resistance to an oil pipeline, it also touches on broader themes of sustainability and biodiversity. The film has garnered significant praise, including selections to the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, the Garifuna International Indigenous Film Festival, and the Los Angeles International Film Festival's Indie Short Fest. LN3 was directed by Suez Taylor, executive produced by Winona LaDuke and Maggie Wachsberger, and sponsored by Nine Muses, Patagonia, Honor the Earth, Extinction Rebellion, and the 11th Hour Project.
