We Are Abel
02 | Synopsis
For the Gwich’in, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a spiritually important land that provides a key source of sustenance and inspiration to the culture.
Every year the Porcupine caribou herd has migrated from the inner grounds of Alaska and Canada to the coastal plain of the Arctic Refuge to calve its young. Here, the young caribou are less vulnerable to predators, but Trump’s plan would put roads, air pads, and oil infrastructure in the middle of this haven. Both caribou and the Gwich’in way of life stand to be impacted.
