Film: Land of Yakamas
Exploring humans’ connection to the earth and our responsibility to future generations
We are excited to share the powerful new Land of Yakamas film, produced by the Yakama Nation, whose native lands extend along the Cascade Range and the Columbia River.
“Our tribe, we believe in the importance of everything, from the smallest insect to the largest bird, and that where we live, everything is connected. The Klickitat River, the White Salmon River, the Wind River…all these rivers, are tributaries of Nchi’-wana, the Columbia River, which in our ways and our beliefs, is the main artery of this land," said Elaine Harvey, Yakama Nation Hydro Systems Oversight Coordinator and Land Trust Board Member. Watch the film.
