Through a tapestry of ritual dance, drama, and storytelling, acclaimed author Jamake Highwater traces the path of the nomads who discovered the Americas and created the complex civilizations of the Aztecs, Incas, and other South American tribes.
See how the history and legacy of these peoples have survived through their myths and art. Experience the transformation of cave drawings into the dancing frenzy of the hunting ritual. Examine the pottery of the Moche, the sculpture of the Tiahuanaco, and the mysterious earth drawings of the Nazcans.
Explore how different peoples' ways of seeing and understanding their relation to nature, the animal world, and the cosmos influences the structure of their society, their morality and their ideals.
Based on Jamake Highwater's book Native Land.
