Red Cry (documentary)

"Red Cry is an original, feature-length documentary film chronicling the lives of Lakota Elders and Oyate (people) in the face of ongoing genocide against the Lakota by government and corporate interests.

The incendiary film is the result of a historic collaboration between traditional Tetuwan Lakota Elders and Warriors from Pine Ridge Reservation and a growing group of native and non-native solidarity activists. In togetherness they are working to bring Lakota Elders — particularly Grandmothers — to the world stage to speak with their own voices to the International community.

Shot in high-definition digital over the summer of 2012 by the Lakota Solidarity Project, Red Cry is the centerpiece of educational outreach for Wagunpi Woashake Ikicupi (Elders Take Back Their Strength) and Stand Behind the Lakota Grandmothers solidarity movement. Extensively researched, the documentary advances the struggles of the Lakota in their own words, from their unique perspectives.

Red Cry premiered on April 1, 2013 at the Mother Butler Center in Rapid City, SD in Lakota Territory. It was shown on consecutive nights in other cities as part of the Lakota Truth Tour.”

Raven and Whale necklace, Gerry Marks (Haida)
In 1971, Gerry studied with Freda Diesing in Prince Rupert and attended the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art; he studied under Alfred Joseph. During his time at Gitanmaax (Ksan), Gerry also learned to make his own engraving tools. During his training, he was greatly influenced by Pat Dixon, Francis Williams, Robert Davidson, and Bill Holm. In 1977, Gerry carved a 25-foot totem pole with Francis Williams and helped Robert Davidson carve the Edenshaw Memorial House front, in Masset. That same year he worked with Peter Page at the Treasures of London Master Craftsmen Workshop, in London. Gerry has pieces in the BC Provincial Museum, the National Museum of Ethnology, and Osaka Museum. His first repousse bracelet was purchased by the Canadian government’s Ministry of Indian Affairs. Throughout 2009 and 2010, Gerry was working from Malaysia and Sweden. His carving style is characterized by precise lines and minute detail. Every surface of his pieces are textured and perfectly finished.
