Black Ice (Drilling for oil in the Russian Arctic) When the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise set sail to protest the first ever oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean, none of the people on board could have known what was coming to their lives.

Return of the River (Removal of the Elwha dams on the Olympic Peninsula) Over 100 years ago, dams were built on the Elwha River to provide electricity for the Northern Olympic Peninsula. When the dams went up, the salmon, the life sustainer for the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, the salmon could not. See the inspiring story of how the dams came down.

Gwich'in Women Speak (Gwich’in Women talk about their lives and their dependence on Arctic nature). The Gwich’in People have lived in the Arctic for thousands of years. Their women talk about the importance of the Arctic Coastal Plain and nature is to their lives.
