Hopi elders in the village of Hotevilla (Arizona) relate the story of their people’s history. As witnesses themselves, they tell about their peaceful resistance against the American government’s ex¬propriating their land and depriving them of their rights. The film shows the beauty of their culture, putting its threatened existence into a global perspective. This unique document of both current and historical images is a plea for the dignity of all peoples and for ecological balance on this earth – a legacy of lasting political relevance.
