The black snake is threatening the water supply of millions as it is escorted across sacred Sioux land granted in perpetuity to the First Nations by the 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie. The map above was created by Carl Sack and published last week by Huffington Post; it clearly shows the racial dimensions of the situation.

This show is an in-depth exploration of the fallacy of the private-public polarity of land ownership. We’ll start with a tribute to the water protectors of Standing Rock, North Dakota, and then compare and contrast that situation with the recent confrontation at Malheur Ranch in Oregon. Also covered are the indigenous water protectors of the Amazon. We’ll conclude with climate change headlines and an update on a previous report from Guy McPherson.
