How Modern Technology Empowers Indigenous Communities

Sustainability Series

Chris Rainier

  • National Geographic Society Fellow

National Geographic's Rainier takes us on a journey to cultures that are integrating traditional knowledge and the use smart phones, cameras, and video to preserve their disappearing traditions to find sustainable solutions for the planet.

Traveling the planet for over 30 years, Rainier has been in a race against time to document indigenous communities struggling to preserve their ways of living for future generations. Now, with the advent of technologically driven storytelling and social media, he focuses on empowering these communities to gather around the “fireplace” of the web to tell their stories of survival.
