Patagonia - Washington D.C.

  • Patagonia DC 3104 M Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20007 (map)

Just north of the Arctic Circle, the Gwich’in people are fighting to protect the lands and caribou from oil and gas development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—a place that has provided them with a rich and bountiful existence since time immemorial. Indigenous groups in southeastern Utah are doing much the same, seeking to defend their homeland and cultural heritage from energy and mining exploitation in Bears Ears National Monument. Join us for Welcome to Gwichyaa Zhee, a short film that explores the commonalities and differences between the two, and why the Gwich’in people need our support, followed by a Q&A with the film’s narrator Len Necefer and filmmaker Greg Balkin.

Prior to the film screening, join us for a nonprofit meet and greet—we’ll have several environmental nonprofits from the community in the store sharing about the work that they do and ways to get involved. Snacks and refreshments are both on the house at this free event.
