Our Land, Our Stories tells the intertwined story of racial and environmental injustice at the Ringwood Mines/Landfill Superfund Site, documenting contested narratives around the site’s contamination by Ford Motor Company in the late 1960s and early 1970s, leading to its listing as a Superfund site in subsequent decades. It unearths the histories and stories that have been buried alongside the dangerous chemicals that remain deep in the soil, just miles from a major drinking water reservoir, and counter the processes of erasure that have made the continuing presence of Indigenous peoples invisible to many.
