Intercept reporters Alleen Brown and Alice Speri will discuss their multipart investigation “Oil and Water,” which revealed how the private security firm TigerSwan, which originated as a U.S. military contractor helping to execute the war on terror, worked at the behest of the company behind the Dakota Access pipeline to surveil and suppress the water protector movement.
Filmmaker Eli Cane, who runs Normal Life Pictures, will show excerpts from his award-winning PBS documentary “On a Knife Edge.” Filmed over a five-year period and culminating with the events at Standing Rock, “On a Knife Edge” provides a view into the interior world of a Lakota teenager as he becomes politically active with the American Indian Movement and confronts the challenges of growing up on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill will moderate a panel discussion featuring Nick Estes, Lakota historian and author of the forthcoming book “Mni Wiconi: Water Is Life, Death, and Liberation”; Tara Houska, tribal attorney, NoDAPL organizer, and national campaigns director for Honor the Earth; and Pamela Spees, an attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights who represents activists in litigation against TigerSwan and the pipeline company Energy Transfer Partners.
