Join us for this important screening. As found on the Sacred Land Films Project website, here is the official description of the film’s themes and content: “Ten years in the making, In the Light of Reverence explores American culture’s relationship to nature in three places considered sacred by native peoples: Devils Tower in Wyoming, the Colorado Plateau in the Southwest and Mount Shasta in California. Rich in minerals and beloved by recreational users, these ‘holy lands’ exert a spiritual gravity that pulls Native Americans into conflict with mining companies, New Age practitioners and rock climbers. Ironically, all sides see themselves as besieged.

This award-winning film documents the Lakota, Hopi and Winnemem Wintu efforts to protect their most sacred places. Their battles tell a new story of culture clashes in an ancient landscape.”

In the Light of Reverence is “produced and Directed by Christopher McLeod. Co-Produced by Malinda Maynor. Written by Jessica Abbe. Edited by Will Parrinello. Narrated by Peter Coyote and Tantoo Cardinal. Educational Distributor: Bullfrog Films.” (
