Many scientists and tribal people consider persistent toxic chemicals to be the greatest threat to the long-term survival of Indigenous Peoples. Drumbeat for Mother Earth explores how these chemicals contaminate the traditional food web, violate treaty rights and travel long distances. The video features testimony from a variety of Indigenous Nations in the U.S., Central America and the Arctic as well as interviews with scientists, activists, and the chemical industry.
