5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Presentation of the Unified Philosophy and Science of the First Americans
Verified purchase
Explains the Philosophy, Astronomy, Architecture, Science, Math and Religions common to North and South America. Even reveals the direct influence of the Iroquois Confederacy on Jefferson and Franklin's ideas on democratic, representative government. Our model for democracy came from upstate New York, not Athens. I've given this set as gifts to several friends already. It should be required viewing in any American History course.

5.0 out of 5 starsFacinating Historical View
Verified purchase
This is an eye opening film about the Native American history covering North, Central, and South Americas. I did not know about the various cultures, construction of homes/towns, sciences, medicine, history recording, written languages, and that their history goes back in time prior to that of Egypt and other heavily studied European/Asian/African cultures. They taught the Europeans about how they settled contentions between different tribes and that info became the basis for the US Constitution. This is one very fascinating historical film that should be focused on more as much of their history goes back before that of the pyramids in Egypt and is much more enlightening of life before the invasion of the Europeans.

5.0 out of 5 starsHow America benefits from its original inhabitants
Verified purchase
Excellent 4 part series. Part 1 shares how ancient Native American traditions are connected to cultures predating the building of Egyptian Pyramids. Part 2 shares how the Iriquois Nation is linked to and credited for parts of the U.S. Constitution. Definitely worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 starsWhat we didn't learn in school about amazing Native cultures.
Verified purchase
I saw this on PBS and had to give to my Alaskan daughter in law as they don't get it there. This should be in every school curriculum. Very well done and educational. It should make every native proud of their heritage and give us all a new appreciation of native culture.

5.0 out of 5 starsWonderful fact filled documentary that's great for the whole family!
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the entire documentary! The true discoverers' of the Americas that has been proven time and time again.
Our history books really need a serious makeover. The facts artifacts history and so called myths and beliefs of our Native Americans, most likely aren't myths at all. i believe all mankind will eventually have an eye opening event or events very soon that will prove the writing on the wall or drawings in the cave are telling us so much more than the close minded, check my messages and life in the artificial world will be abruptly interrupted.!

5.0 out of 5 starsA must Watch
Verified purchase
Every American should watch this. It has fascinating information about the impressive empires, faith systems, and scientific discoveries of preEuropean peoples of north and south America. I thought my degree in anthropology and archaeology had taught me about native peoples, but this blew me out of the water.
