Documentary on renewable Native energy

‘Power Paths’ to premier in FlagstaffCan America truly achieve energy independence and can Native American nations take the lead in renewable energy?

The documentary “Power Paths,” directed by Bo Boudart, reveals answers to these questions through the eyes of Native Americans who have made a firm decision to protect ancestral lands and resources for future generations.
And:“Power Paths” shows how tribes such as the Navajo, Hopi and the Lakota find ways to bring renewable energy projects into their communities through a grassroots movement.

“For me, when I watched it, it gives hope for renewable energy all over the world, but particularly herein the Southwest—how viable it is,” Wahleah Johns, co-director of Black Mesa Water Coalition, said. “We have wind potential but also solar potential.”
