Episode 2 : Save the Confluence

October 7, 2015


Our Climate

Renae grew up in Bodaway Arizona, and has always watched over the land just as her Native American ancestors did. Chip is an outsider, but after years as a physician on the Navajo Reservation, he is equally protective of this place and its traditions. The two have joined forces to save the Confluence – a sacred meeting of rivers – from outside developers. But they’re facing resistance from their own community. Find out why.
