Colombian Filmmaker Shares Vision with Roaring Fork Valley

Brian Tonozzi

Colombian lawyer, activist and filmmaker Diana Ojeda is carrying an invitation from the oldest Wiwa population in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia to the Lakota Tribe in South Dakota. She is guided by an indigenous prophesy that transforms five hundred years of oppression into an opportunity for global re-unification. A teaser for Guardians of the Earth, the film that she is creating to document this momentous occasion, will be shown at the Glenwood Springs Library on Wednesday, June 6, at 4pm and at the Launchpad in Carbondale on Friday, June 9, at 7pm.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
