Standing On Sacred Ground

Indigenous communities around the world and in the U.S. resist threats to their sacred places-the original protected lands-in a growing movement to defend human rights and restore the environment. In this four-part documentary series, native people share ecological wisdom and spiritual reverence while battling a utilitarian view of land in the form of government megaprojects, consumer culture, and resource extraction as well as competing religions and climate change.
