This film explores the Native American belief that humans and all other beings in the world share a common destiny with the Earth itself. Native American religion is based on a tradition of respect and reverence for this interdependent relationship, and the sacredness of all life. The destiny of Earth's inhabitants is inextricably intertwined with the fate of the Earth itself, and how we treat our home. Two short films are presented to illustrate this practical and mystical philosophy. They are Walking in Both Worlds and The Hopi Prophecy.
