XBOUNDARY, explores the large-scale open-pit mining boom currently underway in northwest British Columbia, Canada. The size and location of the mines–at the headwaters of major salmon rivers that flow across the border into Alaska–has Alaskans concerned over risks posed to their $2b fishing and tourism industries and unique way of life.
FIRST LIGHT independently documents the work of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), the first such task force in US history to investigate issues important to Native Americans.
JUVINILE JUSTICE: THE ROAD TO REFORM. It was a turbulent spring of 2015 as protesters and rioters took to the streets of Baltimore expressing their frustration with the justice system. Fifty miles away seven high school students watched the scene unfold and asked themselves why it happened. What were the factors that lead to this situation, and more importantly, what could be done to make our youth safer in the communities where they live?

“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 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 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.
