Summary, etc.:
Examines the history and culture of Native Americans.
Native America challenges everything we thought we knew about the Americas before and since contact with Europe. It travels through 15,000 years to showcase massive cities, unique systems of science, art, and writing, and 100 million people connected by social networks and spiritual beliefs spanning two continents. The series reveals some of the most advanced cultures in human history and the Native American people who created it and whose legacy continues, unbroken, to this day. This series explores this extraordinary world through an unprecedented combination of cutting edge science and traditional indigenous knowledge. It is Native America as never seen before-featuring sacred rituals filmed for the first time, history-changing scientific discoveries, and rarely heard voices from the living legacy of Native American culture. Native America illuminates the splendor and sophistication of a past whose story has for too long remained untold. It reveals a unifying belief that inspires these diverse cultures-people are deeply connected to earth, sky, water, and all living things. It is a belief rooted in millennia of living on this land and continues to resonate in the lives of Native Americans to this day.
