Reciprocity Project

Season One

Facing a climate crisis, the Reciprocity Project embraces Indigenous value systems that have bolstered communities since the dawn of humanity. To heal, we must recognize that we are in relationship with Earth, a place that was in balance until the modern industrial age. This short film series and multimedia platform invites learning from time-honored and current Indigenous ways of being. In Season One of the Reciprocity Project, storytellers and community partners created films in response to a question: what does 'reciprocity' mean to your community?
