Climate Change is Here, the Movie
Climate Change is Here: The Movie.
The deadly coronavirus made its way to the United States even in the far reaches of Alaska we were advised by our United States government to stay home, stay safe
All of a sudden we were in isolation
Thanks to zoom technology offered for free hosts and media producers like myself were able to continue our work and conduct interviews and share content
While in isolation I started a podcast called Climate Change is Here
This film is a product of this important effort to make the world aware and engage them in this critical conversation about climate change and the real threat it is imposing on people, our environment and the health of both.
Race, Resource and Responsibility: Crisis on the Tundra
Environment and Heath in Alaska, Indicators and Influences.
Interview by Filmmaker, Journalist, Robert Lundahl.
Patrick Anderson (Tlingit), Thunderbird Clan, Attorney, Health Administrator and tribal manager discusses the Health of Alaska Natives in the era of Climate Change. Patrick most recently served as CEO of Alaska Rural Cap, and as a long term board member of Sealaska Corporation. Patrick’s focus is on Toxic Stress, Adverse Childhood Experiences (Aces), and intergenerational trauma.
There are intractable problems, knotted incapacities. Wrong silo, trapped by administrative regulations into a cage of inaction only an attorney could love, and probably not an environmental or a human rights attorney.
So the question becomes how to peel apart the layers, face the brutal abuse and colonial rampage that resides in the bloodstream of native populations as well as the toxic stress lying across and connecting cultures, native and non native alike, particular to Alaska.
You have joined us, on Nature’s Touch, Climate Change is Here. I’m your host, Robert Lundahl, Filmmaker and Journalist. Our topic today, government bureaucracy and neglect, the health of Alaska native peoples, in the face of climate change. Episode 10, Environment and Health in Alaska, Indicators and Influences.
With me today is Patrick Anderson, a health care and tribal administrator, with the Indian Health Service, the Makah Tribe, and his latest position, CEO of Alaska RurAL Cap.
Systems interactions between people, their food sources, climate, and the place that they live, can become overwhelming,
