The Seven Generation River (#315) Duration: 26:59 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

In a time when America's natural resources are caught in the crossfire of deep divisions between Americans, the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi Indians from the southwest corner of the Great Lakes might hold the key to healing our divisions, healing nature and healing ourselves. For the Pokagon, water is sacred. They are intimately tied to the lakes, rivers and streams that run through tribal lands. When the Federal government recognized the Pokagon as a sovereign tribal nation, the tribe launched a series of cultural preservation and environmental restoration efforts. The Pokagon are leading a major cultural preservation and environmental restoration effort in order to pave the way for the next seven generations.

The Blackfeet Flood (#321) Duration: 26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Fifty years after a devastating flood that left him an orphan, a Blackfeet man returns to his reservation to face the ghosts of his past. In 1964, Swift Dam broke and swept through Montana's Blackfeet Reservation - uprooting homes, killing 31 people, and signaling the end of a way of life for many traditional families. Fifty years after the worst natural disaster in the state's history, a Blackfeet man named Butch returns home to confront the tragedy that left him an orphan at 14, and to try to remember "what it means to be Blackfeet."

The Mayors of Shiprock (#305) Duration: 58:30 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Meet The Mayors of Shiprock - that's what some people call The Northern Dine Youth Committee. These young Navajo leaders meet every week to learn about their Native culture, discuss community improvements, and work to bridge divides within their community. Some on the reservation say they don't have the traditional knowledge and language needed to be real leaders... but the Mayors are not stopping.
