HOMELAND
Presented by the Sierra Club of Northern Alameda County

Native American activists are successfully preventing multinational oil, methane gas, and uranium companies from overrunning and completely devastating the reservations left to them by corrupt U.S. administrations that drove them off their native lands. With the support of their communities, activist leaders are able to reject the current dismantling of thirty years of environmental laws by the current corrupt U.S. administration. The leaders are dedicated to forcing change -- to save their land, preserve their sovereignty, and ensure the cultural survival of their people. Reflecting on this experience of Native Americans, this documentary film presents a vision of how people all over the world can turn around the ravenous destructive policies of thoughtless resource plundering and create a new paradigm in which people can live healthier lives with greater understanding of, and respect for, the Earth and all of its inhabitants. This moving documentary goes into the lives of Native American leaders as they confront major corporations that are ruining their lives, livelihoods, and neighborhoods and shows how their stance against them politicized them and changed their lives.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to our Humanist Tea House
