This video segment features student filmmakers from Haskell Indian Nations University. Their film project, titled Where Words Touch the Earth, is a vehicle to share indigenous wisdom with other Native students and with the broader population who view their work. The video segment features Native student filmmakers as well as Elders talking about climate change. It begins with the student filmmakers explaining the meaning behind the film project, Where Words Touch the Earth, and why their involvement matters. Native Elders then share some of their observations of how climate has changed and the sense of responsibility Native people share not to stand idly by in the face of change. The background essay explains how climate change affects us all, and helps promote the idea of knowledge about climate change and our environment. The discussion questions ask what students themselves can do to help climate change, as well as what aspects of climate change interest the student the most. There is a helpful section that shows your states standards for grades K-12, and links are provided for related resources on the teachers domain website.
