Whose Home on the Range?

The peace process between environmentalists, ranchers, and the U.S. Forest Service in the toughest county in the West.

A printer-friendly version of this page 55 minutes
Produced by Ben Daitz

Catron County, New Mexico -- the "toughest county in the West" -- has been at the center of a struggle between ranchers, loggers, environmentalists, and the U.S. Forest Service over the management of federal land.

The only physician in the county, concerned about the health of his community, began a process of dialogue among citizens. This is a story of how health was used as a catalyst to make peace.

"A wonderful excellent resource to facilitate public dialogue."
Paul Nathanson, Director, The Institute of Public Law, Univ. of New Mexico School of Law

"Covers a large stretch of psychic and scenic ground. Daitz keeps a judicious balance as he follows one community's attempt to negotiate some difficult terrain and to begin to reconcile."
Taos Talking Picture Festival Program

"A superbly crafted film showing how a community moved from destructive clash to productive communication."
Stephen Littlejohn, President, Public Dialogue Consortium

"I liked the film's attention to the long, slow process of real conflict transformation. No quick fixes here, but people struggling...but above all, listening to each other and to the land to change themselves and transform their problem. It was of special interest to me as a health worker exploring the possibilities of health as bridge to peace."
Joanna Santa Barbara, Centre for Peace Studies, McMaster University

"A nicely documented glimpse at the complexities of western land management -- and also a surprising account of a successful community-level compromise between resolutely opposed antagonists."
Timothy McGettigan, University of Southern Colorado

"I normally don't review conflict resolution videos. So many are talking heads sitting around a table - boring. Not this one. Whose Home is a professional high quality video...As we follow the participants through a facilitated process we begin, as they do, to understand the validity of each participant's point of view. We also discover their common bond of attachment to their wonderful region of the state...And yes, by the end the now collegial group oversees a project that meets everybody's needs."
Paul Wahrhaftig, Conflict Resolution Center International
