Abstract: 

Mississippi Waters is a 30-minute video survey (with accompanying Study Guide) of the nature, geology and culture of the Mississippi Headwaters. The story is told through scenic footage of wildlife and the river, and historic art, photographs and drawings, Ojibwe storytelling and music. It introduces the different concepts of land ownership of white and native cultures and makes the case for continuing stewardship of the lands and waters of the Mississippi River. Produced by the Mississippi Headwaters Board in 1991, the video is only available through your local or regional library system. Copies of the Study Guide are available from the Mississippi Headwaters Board, however, they do not contain lesson plans or curriculum materials.
