This important documentary highlights the destruction, both cultural and physical, of some important religious sites belonging to (or stolen from) Native American tribes across the country. Though the film takes a news angle, it really gives voice to indigenous peoples’ connection to the land and how this connection has, and continues to, help to preserve the environment.
Viewers are invited to really look at nature through the eyes of these communities, and think about the natural world in a more sacred and holistic way—while also witnessing the injustice that is still visited upon indigenous communities in the US.
Anyone with an interest in social justice, environmental issues or indigenous communities. While it may not be surprising to many, the film will ideally help change the way we think about the world around us.
It can be hard to watch, but it’s especially poignant now as we face mass ecological destruction around the world.
