Join us to watch brilliant satirical film Peace Pipeline and stay for a conversation and bannock with director and actor Gitz Crazyboy.
In the Peace Pipeline, comedian-activists pose as an Indigenous energy company sharing plans to reroute Enbridge’s pipeline through the wealthy white suburbs of Duluth, MN, to more fairly share the risks oil pipelines bring—with shocking and hilarious results. 24 minutes.
Gitz Crazyboy is a Denesuthine and Siksikaitsitapi (Blackfoot) activist and youth worker who de-colonizes indigenous studies and teaches the history of Canada’s indigenous population. Working on reservations in rural areas and in cities, he educates on the destructive nature of the development of the Tar Sands. He is an author (“The Secret of the Stars”), an actor (credits include the Darren Aronofsky film “Mother!”) and an impresario (he hosted an episode of VICE’s “Rise,” and played both himself and a comic fictional character in “The Yes Men Are Revolting”).
Tito Ybarra is an Anishinaabe and Mexican comedian, pow-wow singer, actor and activist. He is well known in Indian Country for his stand-up, and he has appeared in the TV series “United Shades of America,” the film “Injunuity,” and he played both himself and a comic fictional character in “The Yes Men Are Revolting.” He has also been featured on Funny or Die, and has worked with legendary Native sketch comedy troupe the 1491s.
