This film is part of the Reciprocity @reciprocityproj series which is made in partnership with Indigenous storytellers and their communities worldwide. Films invite learning from time-honored and current Indigenous ways of being. Facing a climate crisis, the Reciprocity Project embraces Indigenous value systems that have bolstered communities since the beginning of time. To heal, we must recognize that we are in relationship with Earth, a place that was in balance for millennia.
