A Dialogue with Bryan Parras: Indigenous Voices & Healing Amidst the Fight for Environmental Justice

HMM producer Anna Steltenkamp speaks with Bryan Parras, a participant in the Sanctuary for Independent Media’s Be The Media! Workshop: “Indigenous Voices: Media for Environmental Organizing.” Bryan Parras is one of the Gulf Coast’s most dynamic environmental justice organizers, fighting along the entire central and eastern United States. He is the co-founder of Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services and Sierra Club’s Beyond Dirty Fuels campaign—and he is one of the protagonists in the film, “The Condor & the Eagle.”

This is the second segment in a three-part dialogue with Bryan Parras. In this segment, Bryan speaks about the importance of people telling their own stories, the need for especially local media to change towards greater inclusivity, and the healing practices Indigenous communities use to cope with the environmental issues they face.
