Drought, flooding, and contamination. Native Americans have had it all. They may have been beaten, bullied, victimized, and killed, but they are still fighting. As the seas rise, the ice melts, and resource extraction pollutes their land and waterways the stakes are getting higher. Today they are on the frontlines of environmental activism. From the water protectors at Standing Rock to the climate refugees of Isle de Charles, Louisiana and Shishmaref, Alaska this film gives voice to the untold stories of the water challenges Native American communities are facing, featuring heart-tugging conversations with community members.
