In this episode of the CBC's "Tapestry" program, Don Hill interviews representatives of the Innu and Navaho about substance abuse and loss of cultural heritage among their peoples. Hill investigates the possibility of using entheogens, or "god-containing" psychedelic drugs, in a ritual setting to heal addiction and cultural rifts. Hill also interviews psychiatrists and anthropologists, who provide scientific perspectives on the value of altered states of consciousness. Hill also includes brief excerpts of the songs and chants shamans in North and South America use in their ceremonies. The interviews and recordings were made in the field, but all are clear, and edited to fit together into a striking introduction to this topic. G.T.B.
