OIL + GAS DRILLING ON BLACKFEET NATION SHORT DOCUMENTARY FILM – EARTH SPEAKS

OIL + GAS DRILLING ON BLACKFEET NATION SHORT DOCUMENTARY FILM – EARTH SPEAKS

Synopsis:

Native Americans speak about the Earth as our Mother and the impacts of oil and gas drilling on tribal lands in the United States, particularly on The Blackfeet Nation in North Central Montana. Outside entities target territories where unemployment hovers at 70%, promising wealth and prosperity, and offering little in return. The exploitation of people, land, and resources is not new to the Native American. How do people, even within the tribe, see the Earth? Is it with a “spiritual eye” or more pragmatic? How are these views affecting the industry on tribal lands, and what alternative is there for a world dependent on fossil fuels?
