Cordillera People Seek to Protect Sacred LandDownloadable Video - 2000
This film joins Maryknoll Sister Ann Marie Braudis as she works with the Philippines' Cordillera people to defend land they regard as sacred against open-pit gold mining operations. They have practiced small scale, cooperative mining on Luzon for generations, but their water and soil are becoming contaminated by toxic chemicals from tailings ponds. The sister and her local interpreter Mercy DeLawan raise international support and awareness for environmental conservation and indigenous land rights and find spiritual solace in the natural world.
