2. A Last Stand For Lelu (2017): 24min, Canada
Directed by Farhan Umedaly and Tamo Campos. A great injustice is being done on Lelu Island near Prince Rupert, B.C., the sacred and traditional territory of the Lax Kw’alaams people for over 10,000 years. The B.C. provincial government is trying to green light the construction of a massive LNG terminal on the island–Pacific Northwest LNG, backed by Malaysian energy giant Petronas, without consent. https://www.laxuula.com/

3. Our Last Refuge (2017): 24min, USA
Directed by Daniel Glick, and produced by Casey Perkins. Our last refuge tells the story of the Badger-Two Medicine, the sacred homeland of the Blackfeet Nation of Montana, and the decades-long struggle to protect it from oil and gas exploitation. The film features voices from all sides of the struggle–Blackfeet elders, local conservationists, and even the law firm pushing for oil exploration. All together, they chronicle the epic saga of this unique landscape, stretching back millennia, and the current legal challenge, the outcome of which could determine the fate of sensitive and sacred lands nationwide. One of the highest profile conservation struggles in recent history, Our Last Refuge is the first in-depth telling of this critical story at a moment in time when the stakes are at their highest. www.ourlastrefuge.org/ourlastrefuge

“If you knew the conditions…”

Approximately 1.5 million Native Americans and Alaskan Natives live on designated reservations in the United States today. All but a few of these reservations are plagued with poverty, unemployment, homelessness, lack of medical care, and insufficient educational resources. Many experience historical trauma, discrimination and feelings of hopelessness. There is pervasive hunger. Some children’s only meals are those served while in school.

Suicide

Suicide rates are more than double, and Native teens experience the highest rate of suicide of any population group in the United States via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death—and 2.5 times the national rate—for American Indian/American Native youth in the 15-24 age group.

Diabetes

Diabetes incidence is 177 percent higher, with the highest rate of type 2 diabetes of any specific population in the U.S. via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

Graduation Rate

The national graduation rate for American Indian high school students was 49.3 percent for the 2003-2004 school year, compared with 76.2 percent for white students via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

High school dropout rates for American Indian American Native youth are double the national average via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

Life Expectancy

Recent reports state the average life expectancy on the Pine Ridge Reservation is 45 years old while others state that it is 48 years old for men and 52 years old for women. With either set of figures, this is the shortest life expectancy for any community in the Western Hemisphere outside Haiti, according to The Wall Street Journal via American Indian Humanitarian Foundation.
