Spirit of the Trees weaves together Native voices, art and music from 40 indigenous tribes and nations. Narrated by the late actor/musician Floyd Red Crow Westerman, this remarkable journey with First Nations People gives insight into the traditions of their spiritual practices, foods and medicines, art and music, shelter and land management - all inseparably connected to trees, forests and Mother Earth.

Living Knowledge: (Northeast) Tribal members from Mashpee Wampanoags, Nansemonds, Pequots, Mohawks and others speak. They were among the first people to greet Europeans. These tribes were completely interdependent with the eastern forests, rivers, land and the Atlantic Ocean. Learn how they have preserved traditions while embracing today's lifestyles.
