Part 1: Pilgrims and Tourists
In the Russian Republic of Altai, traditional native people create their own mountain parks to rein in tourism and resist a gas pipeline that would cut through a World Heritage Site. In northern California, Winnemem Wintu girls grind herbs on a sacred medicine rock, as elders protest U.S. government plans to enlarge one of the West`s biggest dams and forever submerge this touchstone of a tribe.
Part 2: Profit and Loss
From Papua New Guinea rainforests to Canada`s tar sands, Profit and Loss exposes industrial threats to native peoples` health, livelihood and cultural survival. In Papua New Guinea, a Chinese government owned nickel mine has violently relocated villagers to a taboo sacred mountain, built a new pipeline and refinery on contested clan land, and is dumping mining waste into the sea. In Alberta, First Nations people suffer from rare cancers as their traditional hunting grounds are stripmined to unearth the world`s third-largest oil reserve. Indigenous people tell their own stories`and confront us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption.
