"The Land Returns"

Film in Progress...


More than 2.4 billion acres. That’s how much land Indigenous people of the United States once held. Today they control just 56 million acres, or 2 percent of what was once theirs. But across the country, farmers, local governments, and environmental advocates are returning that land, acre by acre. Not because they have to – but because they want to. “The Land Returns” chronicles a surprising new way that Indigenous nations are regaining their land: individual settlers, local governments, environmental organizations, and even corporations are returning stolen land to Indian nations as part of a growing grassroots movement of restitution and reconciliation.
