America's Last Frontier
From the Arctic to Africa, AMERICA’S LAST FRONTIER, was first seen on MTV News with a call to action to stop the mandate to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The rockumentary premiered at the United Nations World Summit on Sustainable Development in South Africa and was broadcast four times across the African continent on SABC Africa.
On bush planes, dogsleds and snow-go’s with Gwich’in spokeswoman, and recipient of the “Emerging Leaders In A Changing World” award, Sarah James, Eyak spokesman and TIME Magazines “Hero for the Planet,” Dune Lankard, and Chief Evon Peter, Alaska’s youngest Athabaskan Chief, AMERICA'S LAST FRONTIER touches down in remote villages nestled in this icy tundra. The spoken word of these courageous Native leaders with the united voice of the Gwich’in and the songs of the socially and politically charged Native Rock Music artist Robby Romero, echoes from community and concert halls in Alaska to Washington DC for a political charged rally with appearances by Faith Gammill, Senator Joe Lieberman, William H. Meadows, Senator Ted Stevens and Senator Paul David Wellstone, expressing visions, warnings and solutions to America’s young and soon to be in charge.
AMERICA'S LAST FRONTIER screened at the National Congress of American Indians Annual Conference in San Diego, California, and for the Working Group on the draft declaration on the rights of Indigenous Peoples at the Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland.
In 2003, Eagle Thunder Records released the AMERICA'S LAST FRONTIER soundtrack exclusively in Indian Country with a special screening of the film during the second session of United Nations Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues at the Dag Hammarskjold Auditorium, United Nations Headquarters, New York City. By the end of the year the mandate to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil and gas exploration was stoped.
