The Creek Runs Red

The Creek Runs Red


The EPA calls the mining town of Picher, Oklahoma the most toxic place in America, but the Quapaw tribe still calls it home. Today the town is divided by fears of serious health risks, environmental politics, civic pride, and old racial tensions between the Quapaw people and the non-Indian community who share the town. The Creek Runs Red explores the human response to an environmental disaster and the complex connection between people and place.
