Wild Equity screens Power Paths, a rousing documentary about the struggles faced by Native American communities at the hands of environmentally devastating energy production.

Power Paths zeroes in on the successful closure of one of Nevada’s most polluting coal-powered plants, as well as the efforts of indigenous Americans to develop clean energy resources on their lands. The movie shows us that “traditional values toward conservation and the earth are also solutions for the rest of America’s energy dilemma.”

As always, our screening will feature a discussion, and this time we are fortunate enough to be joined by noted activist Wahleah Johns! Wahleah Johns is featured in the film, and had agreed to answer audience questions at our event!

Wahleah Johns is a member of the Navajo (Dine) tribe and the community of Forest Lake, which is one of several communities atop Black Mesa, Arizona. Wahleah’s work with the Black Mesa Water Coalition and Navajo Green Economy Coalition has led to groundbreaking legislative victories for groundwater protection, green jobs and environmental justice. As the Black Mesa Solar Project Coordinator, Wahleah is helping to bring utility scale solar to local communities of Black Mesa region on the Navajo reservation. Wahleah currently lives in Oakland, CA with her husband Billy Parish and their two daughters Tohaana and Alowaan.
