Student Matinee | Standing at the Water's Edge

  • Cristina Mittermeier, Marine Biologist and Photographer

Photojournalist Cristina Mittermeier knows the power of water: the power to give life when it is respected, and the power to destroy when it is misused. Join Cristina’s journey to four indigenous communities around the world, the Kayapó in the Amazon, the Inuit of Greenland, the First Nations people of British Columbia, and native Hawaiians. These communities live in harmony with their water sources, and through their stories, students will learn about responsible earth stewardship.
