Duwamish Tribe Environmental Justice Digital Stories

In the winter and spring of 2012, JHA had the opportunity to teach six Duwamish Tribe youth about Environmental Justice and how to make digital stories.  Their stories were about the Duwamish River and how the river’s contaminated state affected the youth from both an individual and  tribal perspective.   We are pleased to announce that Jac Trautman was a Youth Filmmaker Award Winner for his story entitled Generations Away from the Duwamish.  You can view information about both the award and watch his digital story at the following link:  Seattle Center: A Story Runs Through It: Neighborhood Film Celebration and Awards.  Other Environmental Justice digital stories made by the Duwamish youth can be watched on You Tube for Austin Shelafoe: The Duwamish People: What the Duwamish Longhouse means to meDaniel Garcia: What’s fair and what’s not fair about the Duwamish River; Alyssa Johnson: My Generation; and Jac Trautman: Generations away from the Duwamish.  Let us know what you think.
