Nibi: The fight for water, rights and a way of life

Film Synopsis

While there has been a widespread focus on the controversy of Line 5, this film takes a closer look into perhaps one of the most often overlooked, yet most important perspectives on this issue - that of Michigan’s indigenous communities. From the perspective of Michigan tribal members, scientific researchers, and legal experts we explore what is truly at stake for Michigan’s native tribes. As the original inhabitants of the land, and with protected treaty rights to the Great Lakes and the Straits of Mackinac these perspectives must be shared, along with the responsibility the state of Michigan has in protecting these rights along with the Great Lakes."
