“The Washington state community of La Push, located just west of Olympic National Park, is home to the Quileute Indian Nation, a tiny tribe that gained popularity for its portrayal in the hit book and movie series “Twilight.””

Together with the PBS NewsHour and KCTS9, EarthFix recently visited the tribe to hear their story.

We're fighting for our lives

That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage.
