Developing Energy Resources, Creating Sustainable Jobs, Honoring Indigenous Beliefs
This collaborative effort between Earl Dotter, Cindy Becnel, and four tribal communities illustrates the valuable contributions made by these sovereign nations in energy resource development (conventional, renewable, alternative), job creation and worker safety. It also honors tribal beliefs and initiatives that guide those communities towards tribal sustainability while "Holding Mother Earth Sacred." The exhibit concept and Interviews were created by Cindy A. Becnel.
