A Texas Myth (Watch Online)

April 19, 2019 - Posted in Reel South by Joseph Cashiola & David Fenster

Episode #402  - The Glover family invites an indigenous activist group to start a protest camp on their land in West Texas. Roughly 20 miles north of the US-Mexico Border, the Two Rivers camp sets out to fight the same company that built the pipeline at Standing Rock. As more oil and gas projects threaten the region, their struggle reveals much about the colonial legacy of Texas and the price of activism.
