For thousands of years Native Americans lived in harmony with the land. When white settlers pushed West, forests were cleared, rivers and streams were dammed, and pollution spread.
The Moon's Prayer portrays the continuing conflicts over natural resources and shows how tribes in the Pacific Northwest are protecting and restoring their lands with projects such as natural fisheries, timber practices reform, and cleanup of polluted bays and wetlands.
