Itinerary Update for the Red Cry Screening

Hello all,

There’s been a slight change in the itinerary — unfortunately the Lakota elders will not be able to make it up to Massachusetts at this time.
We are excited to share that Chikako Nishiyama, a government official from Fukushima will be joining us to share a bit of her firsthand account of the still unfolding situation in Japan. 

We are still excited to share Red Cry and have some information and media to share with you from Pine Ridge.

Chikako Nishiyama, from the village of Kawauchi in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, is making a trip to New England to offer her eye-witness report on the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Kawauchi is about 15 miles southwest of the stricken Fukushima nuclear reactors. The 2,300 people who lived there were evacuated. A year later they were told it was safe to return, but most still stayed away, fearing radioactive contamination. Now two years later, there are still many who have not returned.
