The SNRC has added four new DVD titles to our collection.
Broken Treaty at Battle Mountain, a 1975 documentary directed by Joel Freedman and narrated by Robert Redford, describes the efforts of the Western Shoshone to regain 24 million acres of land promised them in an 1858 treaty with the US. The sequel to that documentary, also directed by Freedman, is 1991’s To Protect Mother Earth, recounting the Shoshone’s efforts to end nuclear testing on lands they consider sacred.
Even if a Hundred Ogres… (1996), directed by Freedman and narrated by Joanne Woodward, is the story of the Sami people of Lapland’s efforts to retain their unique cultural identity and to protect the Arctic against destructive exploitation.
And, finally, Warrior: The Life of Leonard Peltier (1992), is directed by Suzie Baer. The film describes the trial, conviction, and imprisonment of Peltier for the murders of two FBI agents in 1975.
