Common Destiny, A
Thomas Banyacya, now in his 80's, is a spokesman for the Hopi high religious leaders. His words come fromthe heart as he interprets the potentially apocalyptic message of the petroglyph on Second Mesa. The Hopibelieve that our culture suffers what they call Koyaanisqatsi, meaning "crazy life, life in turmoil, life out of balance," that we are living out of harmony and are spiritually bankrupt. Their message: the only hope for humankind to survive is to return to spiritual connectedness with Mother Earth.

Alberta selective loggers are shown in action usinghorses and machines. Existing, clean pulp mill technology is presented, including treeless paper.Part 3: THE ECONOMICS OF THE BOREAL FOREST. Part III dispels the myth that we have to choosebetween jobs and the environment: the type of industries that are best for the environment are also shown tobe the most labor intensive, most stable, and require the smallest capital investment. Given a level playingfield, local nature tourism operations, selective loggers, small sawmill operators and wood productsmanufacturers can ensure a stable, satisfying source of employment for Albertans.
