Our Documentary:

Living off the land, Alaska Natives defend the world's largest salmon runs against the impacts of the world's largest gold mine, the proposed Pebble Mine. President Obama and the EPA can rule on permitting Pebble Mine this year. Watch families fish for salmon, as we open a space for tribal elders and youth to share their ways of life.  

 

Share the Stories:

As we share We Can't Eat Gold at film festivals, you can check in with us on facebook. Please share the trailer with as many people as you can. Our documentary is an independent production. We need you to share these stories of Bristol Bay's 'salmon way of life' so that Alaska Native voices are heard around the world. 

 

Empower Communities:

Empowering communities with educational tools is our goal as filmmakers, rather than making any profit from our work. Please support the film financially and share the stories so we can empower indigenous communities and schools with free copies of We Can't Eat Gold and screen it in as many theaters as possible in 2013.
