The Cherokee Word for Water( Visual )

The Cherokee Word for Water is a film about the events surrounding the late Wilma Mankiller's life that led to her political career, and ultimately to becoming the first female Chief of the Cherokee Nation. The film begins with Mankiller returning to Oklahoma from California in the late 1970s, and follows her as she meets her future, Charlie Soap, and has a near-fatal car wreck, but the film is centered on the Bell Water Project. Bell is a community in the Cherokee Nation where most residents did not have indoor plumbing. Mankiller, the director of the Nation's Community Development Department at the time, and Soap, who also worked for the Nation, began an outreach program to the community which led to the tribe supplying equipment and assistance for a16 mile waterline that members of the community dug themselves. The project gained considerable attention as a model of self-sufficiency and self-determination in Indian country. Based on her popularity from the Bell project, Mankiller successfully ran for Deputy Chief in 1983; the position led to her succeeding Chief Ross Swimmer when he was appointed as head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1985.--Indian Country Today Media Network

"From Ethiopia to Peru, indigenous customs protect biodiversity on sacred lands under pressure from religious conflicts and climate change. In the Gamo Highlands of Ethiopia, scientists confirm the benefits of traditional stewardship even as elders witness the decline of spiritual practices that have long protected trees, meadows and mountains. Tensions with evangelical Christians over a sacred meadow erupt into a riot. In the Peruvian Andes, the Q'eros, on a pilgrimage to a revered glacier, are driven from their ritual site by intolerant Catholics. Q'eros potato farmers face a more ominous foe: global warming is melting glaciers, their water source. Andes farmers, scientists and visiting Ethiopians struggle to adapt indigenous agriculture to the changing climate"-- http://standingonsacredground.org/learn-more/synopses (as viewed on April 11, 2014)
