Homeland: Four Portraits of Native Action
Nearly all Indian nations sit on land threatened by environmental hazards. This is one of the most important but least-known human rights stories in America today. The realities that the tribes live with are bleak—children play near radioactive waste, rivers that tribes depend on for food are poisoned and reservations are completely surrounded by strip mines and smoke stacks spewing noxious fumes. Homeland: Four Portraits of Native Action takes a hard look at these realities and chronicles the efforts of four remarkable Native American activists leading the charge in these new Indian Wars. They are dedicated to forcing change – to save their land, preserve their sovereignty and ensure the cultural survival of their people.
