    Grab An official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, this program is an intimate portrait of the little-documented Grab Day in the villages of New Mexico's Laguna Pueblo tribe. This community-wide prayer of abundance, thanks and renewal exists at the intersection of traditional native and contemporary Western cultures. Each year, Laguna Pueblo villagers honor Catholic saints and family members by showering food and gifts from the rooftops of their homes upon the community gathered below. The film explores the origins and evolution of this 300-year-old custom, from its introduction by Spanish settlers to its modern-day twists. Narrated by actress Parker Posey, it follows three families as they prepare for the annual event, chronicling their lives for the year leading up to Grab Day. duration 55:37   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1713] METHODIST GAY MARRIAGE CONTROVERSY - The issue of same-sex marriage continues to roil the United Methodist Church, the nation's second-largest Protestant denomination. Last week, a Methodist court convicted a Pennsylvania pastor of violating church law after he officiated at a gay wedding. He will be defrocked ifhe does not withdraw his support for same-sex marriage in 30 days. And other church trials on the issue are still ahead. Betty Rollin speaks with Rev. Tom Ogletree, a United Methodist scholar and former Dean of the Yale Divinity School and the Drew Divinity School, in New Jersey, who faces a possible trial for officiating at the marriage of his gay son. Rev. Ogletree says there is "no concept of homosexuality or sexual orientation at all" in scripture. But Rev. Rob Renfroe of the Woodland United Methodist Church, near Houston, is among Methodists who insist "there is not any passage in scripture that is condoning or accepting of that practice." (Originally aired on September 20, 2013)
    TAYLOR BRANCH ON 1963 - Last week the nation marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

"1963 is without a doubt the breakthrough pivotal year" for Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement, says Branch, whose latest book is called The King Years. Managing editor Kim Lawton talks with Branch about some of those events and the central role churches played in all of them.(Originally aired on June 21, 2013)

    Waterbuster Filmmaker J. Carlos Peinado revisits his ancestral homeland in North Dakota to investigate the impact of the massive Garrison Dam project. Constructed in the 1950s by the Army Corps of Engineers, the dam destroyed a self-sufficient American Indian community, submerging 156, 000 acres of fertile farmland and ranchland, and ultimately displaced Peinado's family and others at the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.
    Peinado traces the footsteps of his maternal grandmother back to the reservation, where he learns more about the building of the Garrison Dam and the effects of the federal government's relocation policies upon sovereign Indian nations. Through interviews with elders, he begins to understand the proud and resilient nature of the Mandan-Hidatsa-Arikara Nation, their contributions to American culture and history, and their deep attachment to the harsh and storied landscape of the Northwestern prairie an attachment for which they paid a heavy price.

    Walking Into The Unknown This Emmy-nominated documentary traces the intimate journey of an American Indian physician and national health columnist as he navigates the health care system and gains a deeper understanding of himself and his health risks. Dr. Arne Vainio works on the Fond du Lac (Ojibwe) Reservation in northern Minnesota, where his Native patients face grim health statistics. His impending 50th birthday - coupled with his frustration with middle-aged Native men who avoid health screenings - prompts a revelation: he needs to heed his own advice. At high risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer, Vainio chooses to confront the health issues that jeopardize his future by undergoing medical screenings, making diet changes and adopting a lifestyle necessary to prevent a fatal outcome. This poignant story reveals Dr. Vainio's vulnerability as he reverses roles and finds himself a patient. The program also includes several powerful testimonials from community members who have experienced the premature loss of Native men in their families, along with explanations of several diagnostic tests told from the patient's point of view. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#247H] Wendell Berry: Poet & Prophet * Wendell Berry, a quiet and humble man, has become an outspoken advocate for revolution. He urges immediate action as he mourns how America has turned its back on the land and rejected Jeffersonian principles of respect for the environment and sustainable agriculture. Berry warns, "People who own the world outright for profit will have to be stopped; by influence, by power, by us." In a rare television interview, this visionary, author - and farmer - discusses a sensible, but no-compromise plan to save the Earth.
    In an encore broadcast, Bill Moyers profiles this passionate advocate, a man of the land and one of America's most influential writers, whose prolific career includes more than 40 books of poetry, novels, short stories, and essays. This one-on-one conversation was taped at Kentucky's St. Catharine College during a two-day celebrating Wendell Berry's life and ideas and marking the 35th anniversary of the publication of his landmark book, The Unsettling of America.
    Berry, described by environmental activist Bill McKibben as "a prophet of responsibility," lives and works on the Kentucky farm where his family has tilled the soil for 200 years. He's a man of action as well as words. In 2011, he joined a four-day sit-in at the Kentucky governor's office to protest mountaintop mining, a brutally destructive method of extracting coal. Moyers explores Berry's views on civil disobedience as well as his strong opposition to agribusiness and massive industrial farms, as well as his support for sustainable farming and the local food movement.
    "It's mighty hard right now to think of anything that's precious that isn't endangered," Berry tells Moyers. "There are no sacred and unsacred places; there are only sacred and desecrated places. My belief is that the world and our life in it are conditional gifts. We have the world to live in on the condition that we will take good care of it. And to take good care of it we have to know it. And to know it and to be willing to take care of it, we have to love it."
    * Also on the broadcast, Bill presents the short documentary Dance of the Honey Bee. Narrated by Bill McKibben, the film takes a look at the determined, beautiful and vital role honey bees play in preserving life, as well as the threats bees face from a rapidly changing landscape. "Not only are we dependent on the honey bee for much of what we eat," says Bill, "there is, of course, a grace and elegance they bring to the natural world that would diminish us all were they to disappear."

The story follows a wood duck family and discovers how a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks and come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds. But our stars are just one of some 150 species of ducks. They come in all shapes and sizes and abilities - some are dabblers popping in and out of the surface of a glass lake and others swim with powerful webbed feet underwater. They fly through the air on short, stubby wings, traveling in large, energy-efficient formations over thousands of miles. Some are noisy and gregarious, others shy and elusive. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

But once they retreat from our view, where do they go? What secrets do they carry back into the forest, away from our prying eyes? Deer are among the most highly-studied mammals in the world; but does any typical homeowner with deer in the yard know how long a deer can live? When they sleep? How many babies a doe can have each year? Working with scientists, special camera equipment, and deer experts and devotees of every kind, Nature reveals the hidden world of white-tailed deer in a whole new light. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
