Why should we be concerned about the inherent integrity of the natural world?  Claire Hope Cummings, an environmental attorney, awakened her profound interest in the environment when she realized that there was both a cultural and spiritual component of place. In this video, Claire speaks about the spirituality of place, our relationship to nature and to indigenous cultures. Ms. Cummings, author of Uncertain Peril: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Seeds, speaks and writes about something equally important: ethical considerations about how corporations have taken ownership of the genes in our bodies and reengineered our sacred native seeds for industrial agriculture.
