“Powerlands”: Young Diné Filmmaker on Indigenous Resistance to Resource Colonization Worldwide


Apr 22 2022

We continue our Earth Day special by looking at how Indigenous peoples are protecting the Earth. We follow the journey of Ivey Camille Manybeads Tso, an award-winning queer Navajo filmmaker whose new film “Powerlands” shows how corporations like Peabody, the world’s largest private coal company, have devastated her homeland. She also connects with Indigenous communities in Colombia, the Philippines, Mexico and Standing Rock facing the same struggle. “The most important thing about the film to know is that it’s for Indigenous people, by Indigenous people … and it’s about showing this global scale,” says Manybeads Tso in an extended interview that features clips from her travels to several continents. “Powerlands” recently won the award for Best Feature at the 2022 American Documentary and Animation Film Festival.

Sea level rise is a threat to all Californians, whether they live near the coast or not

KCRA News – Apr 22, 2022

Sea level rise is one of the many threats we face as Earth’s climate changes. Global average temperatures are rising, and so are ocean temperatures, forcing the water itself to expand. Higher temperatures in the arctic have also led to rapid ice cap melting, further adding to ocean levels. Climate models suggest that for every 1 degree Celsius of future warming, water levels could rise another seven and a half feet in some spots. Climate Central’s Coastal Risk Screen Tool shows what that could look like for Northern California.
