Red power energy

Olken, Lisa D., (producer,, writer,, director.). Pourier, Larry, (director.). Kennedye, Charles, (director of photography.). Wruck, Dave, (editor.). Ahtone, Tristan, (narrator.). Rocky Mountain PBS (Firm), (producer.). Vision Maker Media, (distributor.).

Summary: "Uniquely intimate, provocative and told from the Native perspective, with a nearly all-Native film crew and all-Native Advisory Council, Red Power Energy is a multi-media documentary that combines engaging storytelling with in-depth journalism. Featured are Western and Great Plains American Indian tribes in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. From tribes mining coal, drilling oil and fracking natural gas to a coalition of tribes and individuals building sustainable wind farms and small scale residential solar, an engrossing story emerges that showcases America's indigenous population reclaiming their right of self-determination. 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 offers 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 under-reported, misunderstood or overlooked"--
