Making Contact

Powerlands – Making Contact – June 23, 2023

On this week’s Making Contact, we feature an extended interview with Ivey Camille Manybeads Tso, a queer Din filmmaker and director of the award-winning documentary Powerlands.

Powerlands traces how multinational energy corporations extract resources and profits while displacing and harming Indigenous communities around the world. The film follows Indigenous activists in Navajo Nation, Colombia, Mexico and the Philippines who are fighting back against corporations like Peabody Energy, Glencore and BHP.
