Lost Civilizations of North America - DVD

by Rick Stout


Quick Overview

The Lost Civilizations of North America explores the fascinating world of ancient North America, and why artifacts and evidences of advanced civilizations have been largely ignored and thousands of them lost. Archaeologists, historians and anthropologists discuss the development of theories of cultural evolution. These theories influenced Manifest Destiny and Native American policies which lead to the wanton destruction of many great ancient structures, earthworks and artifacts. Many of the controversies that grew out of these conflicts continue to exist today. The film explores these controversies, ranging from interpretation of remaining artifacts and structures, to recent DNA research. An engaging, thought provoking film, Lost Civilization reveals why we haven't heard about the great civilizations that once existed on the North American continent and why evidences of their origins and connections to living Native Americans have passed out of place and time.

The Lost Civilizations DVD is a compelling new documentary by award winning filmmaker Rick Stout that answers the question of why most Americans have never heard about the remarkably advanced civilization that once existed anciently in the Heartland of the North America continent. Emeritus Director of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, Roger Kennedy, joins other scholars in explaining how this ancient civilization was lost to time through racial bigotry, misunderstanding, scientific agendas such as "cultural evolution" and deliberate deceptions against the modern descendants of these ancient cultures. Expert historians, anthropologists, researchers, linguists, archeologists, and Native Americans, tell the story of this once great civilization, which existed before, during and after the 1st century BC and AD in North America, and how sites and artifacts were dismissed, ignored, destroyed, and even hidden away for more than a hundred years, effectively telling Native Americans (and the rest of us) that they had no history. Modern researchers are finally uncovering the abundant evidence that still remains, bringing to light again the incredible story of this ancient civilization that rivaled all others of the world in its time. In particular, historians and other experts explore the development of the once prevalent theory of cultural evolution (coincident with Darwinian Evolution) and how this theory influenced the doctrine of "Manifest Destiny" and Native American policies that actually encouraged the “wanton destruction” of many priceless ancient structures and earthworks as well as hiding away and discrediting the of artifacts found within them. Lost Civilization explores sites still existing, which show ample evidence of advanced civilization, and describes the amazing knowledge of astronomy and mathematics which it took to build these structures. The film shows many of the artifacts that have survived, the inscribed tablets, the copper and iron tools and weapons and other artifacts that reveal origins for these people that were purposely hidden away.
