“We are going to fight for this place we call our home.” - Chief Earl Old Person
Our Last Refuge tells the story of the Badger-Two Medicine region, the sacred homeland of the Blackfeet Nation of Montana, and the decades-long struggle to protect it from oil and gas exploration. The film chronicles the epic saga of this unique landscape, stretching back millennia, and the current legal challenge, the outcome of which could determine the fate of sensitive and sacred lands nationwide. One of the highest profile conservation struggles in recent history, Our Last Refuge is the first in-depth telling of this critical story at a moment in time when the stakes are at their highest.
