Summary:
Through archival footage, artifacts and interviews, viewers will gain a broad understanding of Native American spirituality. Discover traditions with an ancient history that dates as far back as 9,000 B.C.E. Learn about the Amerinds, who came from Asia to North America. The new environment profoundly affected this society's culture and spiritual life, and, in turn, their mode of economy. As these determinants changed, so did Native American spirituality. Examine how hunting and gathering societies practiced animism, the worship of animals, and then shifted to harvest rituals as the society became more agrarian. Students will explore specific customs and rituals from the diverse cultures of the Eskimo, Iroquois, Maya, Aztec and other tribes. Narrated by Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley. Part of the Religions of the World Video Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

Only available in the US.
