Love is the Way brings together the voices speaking in defense of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, highlighting the generations of stewardship by Gwich’in and Iñupiaq people. Inspired in part by footage of the late photographer Michio Hoshino, this film explores the friendships, values, and stories shaped by the place, and the strong commitments to its protection. As the Trump administration pushes a decades-old political agenda, this film reminds us of the sacred connections between us, and the ways that a place can teach us how to live with respect and compassion.
Ambler mining road would disrupt the Western Arctic Caribou migration, cross over 2,000 rivers & streams, interfere with subsistence lifestyles of rural Alaskans, & cross through @GatesArcticNPS. Sound like a bad idea? We think so too.
