Update: "OYATE" wins award at Red Nation Film Festival!

"OYATE" documents the struggles and triumphs of Indigenous activists, organizers, and politicians during the years following the Dakota Access Pipeline protests.

OYATE's producer, Jen Martel received the Courage Award at the 27th Red Nation Film Festival in Los Angeles for her work on documentary.

The film would not exist without her and we agree, she’s amazingly courageous. Anyone who knows her will tell you the same.

Not to mention, the film also won Best Director and 1st Runner Up Native/Indigenous Film at the Albuquerque Film & Music Experience. Congratulations to the entire OYATE team for these prestigious awards!

In the wake of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, Indigenous people across the nation are using their platforms to shed light on the wide array of injustices committed against them for centuries. And OYATE elevates the voices of Indigenous activists, organizers, and politicians as they look towards a more sovereign and sustainable future for their people.

The doc features perspectives from Chase Iron Eyes, Phyllis Young, Secretary Deb Haaland, Tokata Iron Eyes, Stuart James, and more.

We're so thrilled to support this powerful and impactful film. Visit the film's website for more info. And stay tuned for more exciting updates about the film in the months to come.
