The Seven Generation River (27 min.)
Online Viewing Link: https://www.greatlakesnow.org/the-seven-generation-river/
This Great Lakes documentary explores the political, social and environmental issues surrounding our most precious natural resource – water. In a time of cultural turmoil, deep divisions between Americans, our environment–our natural resources–are caught in the crossfire. In an approach that blends the latest science with their traditional ways, infusing science with their cultural values, a small band of Native Americans nestled in the southwest corner of Michigan and the Great Lakes might have the key to healing our divisions, healing nature, healing ourselves. They are the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians.
