Native America Native America challenges everything we thought we knew about the Americas before and since contact with Europe. It travels through 15,000-years to showcase massive cities, unique systems of science, art, and writing, and 100 million people connected by social networks and spiritual beliefs spanning two continents. The series reveals some of the most advanced cultures in human history and the Native American people who created it and whose legacy continues, unbroken, to this day.

This series explores this extraordinary world through an unprecedented combination of cutting edge science and traditional indigenous knowledge. It is Native America as never seen before -featuring sacred rituals filmed for the first time, history changing scientific discoveries, and rarely heard voices from the living legacy of Native American culture.

Native America rediscovers a past whose splendor and sophistication is only now being realized, and whose story has for too long remained untold. It reveals a unifying belief that inspires these diverse cultures - people are deeply connected to earth, sky, water, and all living things. This belief is rooted in millennia of living on this land and continues to resonate in the lives of Native Americans to this day.

Native American nature belief
Review by Joseph on 10/03/23 review stating Native American nature belief
Native American attitude toward nature is similar to Gaia Hypothesis. This is a relevant lesson for all of us.

Review by Robert R. on 11/01/22 review stating Pleasantly surprised
I never saw this program on TV and really didnt know what to expect, maybe an outdated video on Native Americans with the usual generalizations copied to DVD?? This DVD is excellent, while not trying to briefly showcase a large number of the Native cultures of the Americas, it did a wonderful job showing how advanced many American Indian cultures were/are. I have been a serious student of Native American history, art, culture since I was a little kid poring over most of the books available in the local library and then advancing to better books, videos and museums later, then earning a degree in Archaeology with a huge focus on preHistoric North America. I recall when visiting Stonehenge in England back in the 80s the guides there when noticing we were a group of Americans made the comment that were probably not used to hearing about artifacts and people from 5,000 - 6,000 years ago. A few of us made various replies mentioning the American Indians and the guides kinda just laughed it off....little did they know. If you dont know or do and want to possibly know more, then viewing these DVDs will be an excellent source.

Cahokia museum is awesome! I plan to purchase this series.
Review by Cahokia F. on 08/14/22 review stating Cahokia museum is awesome! I plan to purchase this series.
We have visited Cahokia Mounds museum several times on our drives back to Ohio. This site is a World Historical Center and it is amazing. Life size dioramas, huge high tech interactive map welcomes visitors to understand details of the mound sites and orientation. Exhibits always improving and updating. Staff and gift shop are so helpful and make your visit a pleasure. The town is laid back and not full of gimmickry. This museum will rock your world--unlike any other you have seen in America. A must see! Cahokia was a crossroads of culture, art, trade and commerce. Please create a documentary on Cahokia Mounds as a stand alone program. There is a wealth of knowledge that every American needs to see to understand the strong roots this country had long before Europeans arrived and destroyed their descendants and their culture.

Review by Oglala on 08/14/22 review stating I am ordering the dvd today.
I have heard great things from all my friends who have seen or bought the dvd. However, looking at the dvd description I am shocked and astounded that it does not have Spanish subtitles. Mexico had 80% of the Native people of the continent went Europeans came; and it continues to have the largest in the world. This dvd should have Spanish subtitles so these millions of indigenous people, who were imposed the Spanish language should be able to see this documentary!

Review by Carl D. on 08/13/22 review stating Native America
I am not a bleeding heart type and sometimes what is done is done . But let me tell you this really opened my eyes . We must Celebrate the indigenous people. Although our history is not a proud one with the American Indian it certainly has some enlightening spots of shared beliefs and positive things . We the people must include ALL the people with a special respect for those who were here first and the wisdom to correct their own inhumanities . This story is told well with a new found respect for me . We should be thankful for all that the indigenous people have taught us . Watch this and you will see what I mean.

Review by Sharon on 08/13/22 review stating The other side of the story--we need more.
We have been handed such a brainwashing. The Native Americans didnt fight hard enough to protect their way of life. I had a major in history but never knew the military killed many hundreds of their cherished horses. EVERYONE LIED TO THEM ABOUT EVERY AGREEMENT AND TREATY. I would have been burning down towns, not just farms. They took their CHILDREN, sent them thousands of miles away to schools, and mistreated them until they died. The MEAN treatment of Native Americans by whites is beyond all understanding. And we are still stealing from them and breaking treaties.

Native America DVD
Review by Carole on 07/10/22 review stating Native America DVD
Pictures were good. I was disappointed in the scope id the video, there are a significant numbers of important tribes that were nor mentioned. A better look at the variety of tribes and the scope if cultural diversity would be much better perspective for those who are not fortunate enough to have first gNd experiences. Perhaps a series of videos highlighting by sections of the country would assist people in giving a better understanding of the scope if history and contributions of the vast contributions of these important cultures. Do not place Eskimos in the same category. These misunderstood cultures merit their own videos.
