The Protect film, by Paper Rocket Productions will be released by the film’s producer, the Livelihoods Knowledge Exchange Network (LiKEN) in December! The film is a living document of a journey, organized by Julie Maldonado, Associate Director of LiKEN.
In July 2016, Indigenous and other community organizers and advocates caravanned across the United States to gather stories from Indigenous communities at the forefront of work for a just transition from toxic to clean energy. Participants of all ages traveled thousands of miles to learn from front-line struggles to protect lands, air, waters, and health. Dr. Maldonado is executive producer for the film.

- support the young Native filmmakers who have given their own time, money, labor, and emotions into this project;
- provide funds for the filmmakers to tour the country;
