  • The fourth and final series examining the role of water in culture and spirituality of Indigenous people has a focus on stewardship and the efforts mounted to balance respect for environment with development. Four films visit New Zealand where the Maori have worked hard in the courts to ensure the rights of water in the face of industrial pressures. In Canada and Washington state, the role of First Nations in ensuring sustainability in their use of what water can offer is inspirational and a contrast with what happened with government and industry when millions of gallons of toxic chemicals were discharged into pristine wilderness from a breach of the dam at British Columbia's Mount Polley mine.
