The film also screened at the Salmon Film Festival in Fort Bragg, California, in the University of Michigan's Social Justice Film Series, at the Americas Latino Festival and at The Bellingham Human Rights Film Festival.

Living off the land, Alaska Natives defend the world's largest salmon runs against the impacts of the world's largest gold mine, the proposed Pebble Mine. The Army Corps of Engineers will soon decide if they’ll permit Pebble Mine. Watch families fish, as we open a space for tribal elders and youth to share their ways of life.
Share the Stories
Now that we’re giving away our film We Can't Eat Gold for free, please share the film with as many people as you can. People can share these stories of Bristol Bay's 'salmon way of life' so that Alaska Native voices are heard before the public comment deadline on federal permitting of the proposed Pebble Mine, July 1st, 2019.
Help Alaska Natives be Heard
Empowering communities with educational tools is our goal, not making money. Please help share this free resource before the Army Corps of Engineers public comment period ends.
