#31 Giving up isn't an option. Feels from the frontlines w/ Indigenous leader Bernadette Demientieff by No Place Like Home published on 2019-02-28T01:14:12Z This season we’ve been taking a deep dive into how climate change makes us feel - how it impacts us emotionally and spiritually - on a heart level. But what if your whole culture and identity were imperiled right now? This episode, we're honored to share the powerful, aching story of Bernadette Demientieff - a leader of the Gwich’in in Alaska. She's fighting for the survival of her way of life and sacred land - threatened by being on the frontlines of climate change, but also a cruel new effort to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
