The Refuge – a movie about the Gwich'in people and the caribou they rely on

A beautifully crafted short film about the Gwich’in people, the caribou, and the threat that oil extraction would have on their home and traditional culture.

“For hundreds of generations, the Gwich’in people of Alaska and northern Canada have depended on the caribou that migrate through the Arctic Refuge. With their traditional culture now threatened by oil extraction and climate change, two Gwich’in women are continuing a decades-long fight to protect their land and future.” Watch the film here.
