Overview

Colorado Premiere
Just as the Trump Administration drastically reduced the size of the Bears Ears National Monument, the Administration is now working to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. “From growing up with energy development all around me on the Navajo nation, I knew exactly what the impacts would be,” says director and film subject Len Necefer. “I couldn’t watch this happen to another Native community without trying to do something.” Solidarity among Native American tribes is a matter of survival.
