In today’s episode, we’ll cover the relationship between people, land, and how we use the land. My guest is Len Necefer, a Professor of American Indian Studies and Public Policy at the University of Arizona. Len’s newest film, "Welcome to Gwichyaa Zhee" explores the impact of opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas development on the local Gwich’in people in Northern Alaska and Canada. Len is the founder of Natives Outdoors, an outdoor apparel company that supports indigenous people through cultural empowerment, and a board member of the Honnold Foundation.
