Public Broadcast Release: November 2009
Power Paths follows grassroots efforts among the Navajo, Hopi and Lakota as they explore ways to create the new renewable energy resources needed to preserve their communities. By revealing the struggle Indian leaders face harnessing abundant natural forces of wind and sun on millions of acres of tribal lands, Power Paths tells a much larger human story about America's struggle to understand, accept and implement a new path toward true energy security.
The inspiring stories in this film vividly illustrate our potential for success in producing the power we need while preserving our planet's livability. Telling these stories through the eyes of America's Tribes exposes fundamental truths that will change the way we look at energy forever.
