"Does an excellent job explaining the issues and unveiling exactly what's at stake in a sacred place that has been treated as a sacrifice zone since white colonization began, while also revealing the beauty of the San Juan Basin. We highly recommend it."— The Land Desk
The Greater Chaco region, home to Pueblo, Diné, and Navajo peoples for generations, contains some of the oldest cultural sites in North America. Over 90% of it is now leased for oil and gas extraction. The result is a community without access to clean water and suffering a host of ailments from environmental pollution. Our Story - the Indigenous Led Fight to Protect Greater Chacois a document of, and by, the native communities who call this land home and are fighting to preserve what remains of it. As a coalition of tribal leaders and grassroots organizers struggle to sustain themselves on an extracted landscape, Our Story presents the latest chapter in the centuries-long saga of exploitation of indigenous lands, told from an indigenous perspective.
