Transition Meaford presents Standing on Sacred Ground: Profit and Loss

Sunday, February 26, 1pm
Meaford Hall, Meaford, Ontario, Canada
Tickets: Adults $7, Students $2

From Papua New Guinea to the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, native people fight the loss of land, water, and health to mining and oil industries in Profit and Loss.

Indigenous communities around the world and in the U.S. resist threats to their sacred places–the original protected lands–in a growing movement to defend human rights and restore the environment.

In Standing on Sacred Ground, a four-part documentary series from the producer of In the Light of Reverence, native people share ecological wisdom and spiritual reverence while battling a utilitarian view of land in the form of government megaprojects, consumer culture, and resource extraction as well as competing religions and climate change.

Narrated by Graham Greene, with the voices of Tantoo Cardinal and Q’orianka Kilcher, the series exposes threats to native peoples’ health, livelihood, and cultural survival in eight communities around the world. Rare verité scenes of tribal life allow indigenous people to tell their own stories–and confront us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption.
