Enei Begaye - Executive Director / Film Producer / Website Designer / Organizer / Banner-Maker / Janitor

Enei is of the Diné & Tohono O’odham Nations, and married into the Gwich’in Nation. Enei has spent years community organizing, training, facilitating, and causing a ruckus.  Over the past 15 years she has served on various national environmental justice boards and network steering committees. She is a co-founder and former director of the Black Mesa Water Coalition and a former water campaigner for the Indigenous Environmental Network. Enei was named one of Utne Readers “50 visionaries who are changing our world," but more importantly she is a dirt loving, vegetable growing, fabric addicted, bookworm, and a fierce mother.  She was educated both on Dinétah --the land of her people-- and the halls of Stanford University. She is based out of Fairbanks, Alaska.
