VIDEO The Sacred Place Where Life Begins | Gwich'in Women Speak



IF SHE CAN DO IT, YOU CAN TOO presents a sneak peak of a new documentary by MIHO AIDA: The Sacred Place Where Life Begins | Gwich'in Women Speak. The arctic native Gwich'in women from all walks of life speak out to protect the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil development. They remind us this is not only an environmental issue but also an indigenous and human rights issue for the nation. My hope is that by sharing their voices, people would be inspired to take action to support Gwich'in's effort to continue their way of life and protect our public land. Go to www.mihoaida.com and visit Gwich'in Women Speak page to find out what you can do.

About Censored News
Censored News was created in response to censorship by Indian Country Today. Censored News publisher Brenda Norrell was a longtime staff reporter for Indian Country Today, when she was censored repeatedly and terminated in 2006. Now in its 9th year with no advertising, grants or sponsors, Censored News continues as a labor of love, a service to grassroots Indigenous Peoples and human rights advocates.

Brenda Norrell has been a news reporter in Indian country for 33 years, beginning at Navajo Times during the 18 years that she lived on the Navajo Nation. She served as a stringer for AP and USA Today on the Navajo Nation and later was based in Tucson and traveled with the Zapatistas in Mexico.

After being blacklisted by all the paying media, Norrell has continued to work without pay, providing live coverage with Earthcycles from Indian lands across the US, including live coverage of the Longest Walk, with the five month live talk radio across America in 2008.
