A new documentary explores the conflict between Native American tribes and the U.S. government over public land, energy and natural resources.
The protests at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation over the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline is just one part of the story.
"Beyond Standing Rock" focuses on the struggle for Native American rights through three major conflicts: the Dakota Access pipeline, oil and gas development on the Southern UTE Reservation in Colorado and the designation of the Bear’s Ears National Monument in Utah.
The documentary was produced by the public media collaborative journalism project, Inside Energy, in partnership with Fast Forward Films.
"Beyond Standing Rock" will air Tuesday at 11 p.m. on KPBS television.
Executive producer Alisa Barba previews the film Monday on Midday Edition.
