Pesticide Industry on Trial: Environmental Activist Vi Waghiyi (2:27)

Viola is a Yupik Eskimo who has seen first hand the devastating effects of pesticides and other toxins in her community. Add your name to this global call for justice: http://bit.ly/uSLeGs

Human Rights for St. Lawrence Island (4:57):

The Yupik people of St. Lawrence Island have been harmed and displaced by contamination from former military bases. The military disposed of massive quantities of toxic waste on their Island that continues to adversely affect the health and well-being of the people. Annie Alowa, a respected elder, raised concerns about adverse health effects. The people of the Island are working to hold the military and chemical industry accountable for violations of human rights. They ask for cooperation in community-based research and advocacy efforts to protect lands, water, and the health of present and future generations.


I Will Fight Until I Melt. Whanga Pillugaghlleqaqa Kenlanga Ughullemnun (14.00):

This short documentary features an interview with Yupik elder Annie Alowa (1924-1997) from the village of Savoonga on St. Lawrence Island. As a health aide, Annie worked to raise awareness and action about the environmental and health effects of a military site built on her island at Northeast Cape. After the military site was built in 1952, Annie observed that her people began to suffer from unusual numbers of miscarriages, cancers, diseases and death. Annie died of cancer in February 1999. She attributed her cancer, as well as the cancers of others who live on Saint Lawrence Island, to the military poisoning of Northeast Cape. Annie Alowa’s life inspires all of Alaska Community Action on Toxics mission based work and projects.
