Documents eight years of protest and acts of civil disobedience to defend Indian ways of life. A must see for all Californians!



River of Renewal documents eight years of protest and acts of civil disobedience as Indian tribes, farmers, and commercial fisherman defend their ways of life,. The film witnesses a remarkable turnaround. Politically polarized stakeholders and government agencies overcome bitter divisions in reaching a consensus about the future—a future that could bring the largest dam removal/river restoration project in history.

This film was made before the historic agreement to decommission and remove the hydroelectric damns on the Klamath River by 2020. Currently stakeholders along the Klamath are working out the details of damn removal and river restoration. This film is recommended by the Karuk Tribe to provide significant back ground and context for the damn removal and river restoration project.

A must see for all Californians!
