Alaska Water Wars is a multimedia project that shares the stories of Alaska Native people as they navigate the benefits and risks posed by new natural resource development projects coming to their regions.

Alaska's Water Wars: Stories from Bristol Bay is a timely, five-minute, 5-part series focused on the proposed Pebble Mine near Alaska's Bristol Bay.

Alaska's Bristol Bay is home to one of the most valuable salmon fisheries in the world. It's also a place where a company has been wanting to build an open-pit copper and gold mine for years. The Obama administration proposed limits for Pebble Mine to protect water. President Donald Trump's EPA could roll those back and make the mine a reality. Complicating matters, the Alaska Native people who live there are divided on whether the mine should go ahead.

This series about the Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay comes to us from Independent producer Daysha Eaton in Anchorage, Alaska. Financial support for this reporting was provided by the Alaska Humanities Forum and KNBA public radio.
