Episode 4 of Save the Chuitna is now live. In the new episode, the filmmakers explore the impact the proposed mine would have on local culture and lifestyle.

From the filmmaker:

“The Native Village of Tyonek is located at the mouth of the Chuitna where the people have relied on returning wild salmon for generations. But PacRim Coal has proposed to mine through 14 miles of salmon streams in it’s first phase of a massive open pit strip mine and threatens the entire way of life for the Tyonek Village.”
