Samantha Crain “When We Remain” Music Video by Bela Unclecat and Yulia Drobova
Executive producer Eric Weiner at The Wild Honey Pie in Brooklyn: “We partnered with Kohler to bring you our newest animated video with Choctaw singer/songwriter, poet, producer, and musician Samantha Crain.
“With the goal of raising awareness for the lack of clean water for Native American populations, the “When We Remain” video depicts the heartbreaking struggles faced by some of our most vulnerable populations.
“Directed and animated by Bela Unclecat and Yulia Drobova, we see the overlooked day-to-day challenges for Indigenous people in addition to the more public, direct threats to their land and traditions.
Native American households are 19 times more likely than white а households to lack indoor plumbing. In some Native American communities in the United States, residents drive 40 miles every few days to haul water home for drinking, cooking, and bathing.
“The story follows the life of one small family and how the access to potable tap water changes lives.”
