Red Power Energy Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Fri, Nov 17, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

This provocative film told from the American Indian perspective reframes today's complex energy debate. Can energy development on tribal lands empower a people while powering the nation? And what impact will it have on their culture, economy and the environment? < br>From a historically passive role in mineral extraction that frequently left their resource-rich reservations either leased out for pennies on the dollar or contaminated by environmental degradation and Federal mismanagement, Native people are in the midst of an extraordinary resurgence. They are challenging long-held stereotypes, fighting for the sovereign right to control their lands and develop their natural and mineral resources - however they choose. These Native-told energy stories offer a rare insight into the ideological battle shaping modern Indian country and further advances a deeper understanding of American Indian culture, which is too often underreported, misunderstood or overlooked. This multi-media documentary combines engaging storytelling with in-depth journalism, and features a nearly all-Native film crew and Advisory Council representing Western and Great Plains American Indian tribes in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado.
