We love this because it gives so much information about early Native Am. civilizations and how they influenced our own country. The information could be shown in segments for younger viewers or the entire program for older folks. My wife originally got the VHS from the library to show to her high school history classes and it was well received each year by the students. Finally it is in DVD form and we watched it soon after receiving our order. Considering it is copied from the original it is a good quality DVD. It is about an hour in length.

As Indian nations are beginning to recreate our traditional engineering societies through engineering programs at the tribal colleges, I can definitely give credit to Dr. Momaday for being an early catalyst towards this movement. It is through this documentary that he maximized his influence to this end.

Even though this documentary is over 30 years old, it is still highly relevant and deserving of audience. The engineering marvels of the early America's have largely gone unnoticed during the greater part of the 20th century. A diverse set of cases are provided, some ancient, some modern, where Indigeonous Americans continue to change their world through durable and creative solutions.

Following in the goals of this film, I can also recommend the book Encyclopedia of American Indian Contributions to the World: 15,000 Years of Inventions and Innovations (Facts on File Library of American History) by Emory Dean Keoke as a companion to continue where Momaday left off.

It is rare to find such a truthful, unvarnished presentation of the influences and contributions of American Indians that is intertaining and suitable for both adults and children (a little long for very young children.) Narrated by N. Scott Momaday, it covers advances by Indian people in the western hemisphere and the impact those influences and contributions had on the cultures of Europe and the whole Eastern hemisphere after contact, from food, language, maps, guided explorations, survival skills, sports, medicine and many, many other things. Well photographed, written and scripted. Highly recommended for schools, but every Indian family should have this video.
