Border Nation featured in the Environmental Film Festival
'Border Nation' is featured in the powerful Environmental Film Festival in Washington. The film follows Ofelia Rivas from her home on the Tohono Oodham Nation to the United Nations, as she describes the abuse by the U.S. Border Patrol and the construction of spy towers in her community, built by Israel's Elbit Systems.
Ofelia is the longtime founder of O'odham Voice Against the Wall, and spokesperson for traditional O'odham elders protecting the culture and sacred places.
