    Written and hosted by Jamake Highwater, a world renowned author on Indian culture, this film examines the differences between Native American and Western cultures, including their contrasting views of nature, time, space, art, architecture, and dance. Language also plays a crucial role, since each language reflects fundamental differences in human perception, differences which for centuries have led to serious misunderstandings.
