Tucson Premiere of the film OURS IS THE LAND
The film tells the story of the Tohono O'odham's deep connection to the Santa Rita Mountains or Ce:wi Duag which are imperiled by the proposed Rosemont Copper mine.
“Ours is the Land” is the new short documentary film that depicts in vivid and powerful detail the spiritual, cultural and physical connection of the Tohono O’odham people of Arizona to Ce:wi Duag, or the Santa Rita Mountains, which is imperiled by the proposed creation of the mile-wide, half mile deep Rosemont open pit copper mine.
The film is told entirely from the perspective of the Tohono O’odham Nation members themselves including Legislative Council members, and tribal elders who speak movingly about the important connection between Ce:wi Duag and the Tohono O’odham Nation. Adding poignancy to the film is the score of Michael Enis, Tohono O’odham tribal member and song dreamer.
