"We Have Been Trying To tell You: This Is Not How It's Done

"Modern science sends satellites into the sky to hear something different. But the Earth's spirit doesn't need to go up there to listen to it's own heartbeat" says one of the indigenous participants.

Filmed at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in 2009, host Phil Cousineau joins over 2000 representatives of native societies throughout the world attempting to get their voices heard on climate change and other critical environmental issues.

This program focuses on the wisdom of indigenous values and practices that have promoted heightened consciousness, spiritual harmony and a life in balance with nature.

With the dramatic increase in environmental degradation, a thinning ozone layer and social alienation, many, including the United Nations, are realizing that native peoples may possess some critical keys to the very survival of our species and fragile ecosystems of the planet.

But is anyone listening?
