The Sustainable Learning Community, in conjunction with the Native American Heritage Month Committee, presents a free screening of Power Paths Nov. 6 from 11 to 12:30 p.m. in the Hearthside Lounge. Admission is free; parking is $3. An inspiring documentary, Power Paths details how Native American communities are creating new ways to produce clean power as tribes attempt to restore lands devastated from the impacts of coal mining. Working together, Hopi, Navajo and environmental organizations force the closure of a major polluting coal plant in Nevada. Many tribes are taking the lead by constructing large wind turbine projects on sovereign tribal lands–and business, government and environmental leaders are taking an interest in the tribes' successes. Power Paths chronicles the tribes' traditional values toward conservation and the earth are also solutions for the rest of America's energy dilemma. It is an inspiring documentary about Native American communities fighting for the closure of a major polluting coal plant, their subsequent move to build solar and wind renewable energy projects and work to restore their native lands.
