Spirit of the Land
This series of videotapes shows how contemporary native American cultures, living in vastly different environments, meet the challenge of balancing the past with the present.
1. Hawaii: Continuing Tradition — Focuses on traditional ways of life in the Hawaiian Islands — fishing, lei making, planting taro and sailing on Hokule’a canoe.
2. Alaska: The Yup’ik Eskimos — Describes the relationship between the Yup’ik people and their environment through the changing seasons.
3. In the Wake of Our Ancestors — Takes viewers through the first stages of Native Hawaiian culture and arts, then shifts its focus to environmental concerns on the big island of Hawaii.
