Our Last Refuge tells the story of the Badger-Two Medicine and the decades-long struggle to protect this sacred homeland of the Blackfeet Nation from oil and gas development.
The film features voices from all sides of the struggle—Blackfeet elders, local conservationists, and the law firm pushing for oil exploration. All together, they chronicle the epic saga of this unique landscape and the current legal challenge, the outcome of which could determine the fate of sensitive and sacred lands nationwide.
Capturing one of the highest profile conservation struggles in recent history, Our Last Refuge was the first in-depth telling of this critical story at a moment when the stakes were at their highest.
The film was used in a successful campaign to cancel the disputed leases and the Badger-Two Medicine is now lease-free.
