Turtle Lodge Indigenous Elders on Climate Change – InFocus

aptn InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:

Climate change is in the prophecies of the people closest to the land.

Elders and Knowledge Keepers were asked to write a document so their perspective of protecting Mother Earth could be understood in the context of climate change.

Through ceremony they created a document and call it, The Great Binding Law.

Watch the story of why the Elders take us back to the beginning of time.
