Native Americans Unite to Raise Awareness on Environmental Issues


Posted By Toyacoyah Brown July 14th, 2017 Blog


Supaman recently shared a video project he had the pleasure of working on, and wow, is it breathtakingly stunning.

“I was honored to be a part of this great project focusing on the fight against the fossil fuel industry and turning towards solar energy. What a powerful message and symbolic interpretation of the awakening that is taking place through Indigenous peoples all around the world!”

The project is called the NAU Project, which stands for Native Americans Unite.



From their website:

The NAU Project is an artistic initiative to unite Native American artists who aim to raise awareness for the current attacks on Native American land, culture and people by the modern coal and oil industries. The NAU project was inspired by the Moapa Paiutes successful fight against the coal industry and the legendary Paiute leader Wovoka. Through the arts, NAU aims to spread Wovoka’s message of inter-tribal unity and the importance of song and dance to overcome all obstacles, peacefully.

The film was directed By Amy Secada & Daniel Garcia. Please watch below!
