Catch a free film screening by Dr. Len Necefer, Chair of American Indian Studies GIDP, with REI and the Wilderness Society Saturday, 31st, 2019 at the REI located on 160 W Wetmore Rd Tucson, AZ 85705.

Just north of the Arctic Circle, the Gwich’in people are fighting to protect the lands and caribou from oil and gas development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—a place that has provided them with a rich and bountiful existence since time immemorial. Indigenous groups in southeastern Utah are doing much the same, seeking to defend their homeland and cultural heritage from energy and mining exploitation in Bears Ears National Monument. Join us for Welcome to Gwichyaa Zhee, a short film that explores the commonalities and differences between the two, and why the Gwich’in people need our support, followed by a Q&A with the film’s narrator Len Necefer.
