The White Road - Visions of the Indigenous People of the Americas - 2012



THE FILM













For the first time people from other cultures were invited to the reunion of elders, indigenous priests and shamans from North and South America.

The film „The White Road – Visions of the Indigenous People of the Americas“ 

is a documentation of this gathering that took place in Merida on the Mexican pensinsula of Yucat√°n in spring of 2003.


The documentary shows the messages and wisdom of the ancient precolumbian cultures. In contrast to Western philosophy of life that draws ego limits, these cultures have the gift of confiding in themselves and in the entire creation. They greet each other with 


„In lak'ech, a lak'en“ meaning „I am in you, and you are in me.“


In this film we immerse into the Mayan world with their fascinating temple grounds, their unique calendar system und their mysterious crystal skulls. Together with the indigenous people we follow the White Road, the spiritual path of the Mayas, in ceremonies and rituals such as the unification of the condor and the eagle in Mayapan, and the ceremony of the equinox in Chichen Itza. 

Dr. Eugenia Casarin – her Mayan name is Nah Kin – is a qualified Mexican psychologist and Mayan priestess. 

In terms of music, she explains:
„We have been moving in the same pitch of tone for quite a long time, but now we will transfer onto a much higher pitch. For this transformation, however, for this change in time and age, all of humanity needs to have attained an equal level of consciousness. This means that we have to enter into an expanded level of consciousness.
If you wish to be in harmony with heaven and earth, you need to be in harmony with all there is – and with all the others. We need to accept that everyone is unique. Without judging him. Each individual is the way he is. Let us respect that!“
According to an Indian legend, the eagle has to undergo a radical transformation in the midst of his lifetime, lest he wants to continue living.

Is humanity confronting a similar decision today?
