        Wetlands

        This video segment explains why Native people regard wetlands not only for their important ecological function, but for their spiritual value as well. For many tribes, wetlands represent life. They consider wetlands to be sacred places that must be protected from external sources of pollution, such as runoff from landscaping businesses and municipal discharges. The video segment was adapted from a student video produced at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas.
