From the Standing Rock protests to the battle for Oak Flat, this docuseries from Viceland expertly investigates the ongoing environmental rights struggles still facing many Native American and indigenous citizens. Unflinching and timely, these stories reflect the ongoing history of native resistance to colonization, giving a face to communities fighting for their most basic rights with an enduring hope that a shameful history will never be repeated.

RISE is both eye-opening education and a rallying cry, inspiring audiences to get involved and truly appreciate the 500-plus year legacy of native resilience—a confrontation of the deep wounds of colonization and the consequences of reckless greed at the expense of indigenous people and the planet itself. The result is an essential documentation of one of the most urgent environmental and civil rights struggles happening today.
