6a0105369e3ea1970b0162fdf06ba2970d 800wi - Protecting the Earth's sacred places through education and actionEarth Island Institute’s Sacred Land Film Project produces a variety of media and educational materials — films, videos, DVDs, articles, photographs, school curricula materials and Web site content — to deepen public understanding of sacred places, indigenous cultures and environmental justice. Their mission is to use journalism, organizing and activism to rekindle reverence for land, increase respect for cultural diversity, stimulate dialogue about connections between nature and culture, and protect sacred lands and diverse spiritual practices. For the last decade they have focused on the production and distribution of the documentary film, In the Light of Reverence. They are currently developing a four-part series on sacred places around the world, entitled Standing on Sacred Ground.

In addition to their films, the Sacred Land website houses many useful resources, including Tools for Action, Native Media links, and a Map of Sacred Sites.
