THIS IS INDIAN COUNTRY With Billy Frank Jr. “The Inupiat, Hanging On at the Top of the World”

Renowned Indian activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Billy Frank Jr. travels to the Native Village of Barrow, Alaska, the “front line” of the climate crisis.  This extraordinary special looks at the impacts of the crisis from the perspective of the Inupiat, and how these dramatic changes are threatening a whaling culture thousands of years old.  Produced, written and edited by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Harris, with photography from veteran photojournalist Kevin Ely and original music from Tim Truman.
