Take the Journey

Since the first steps of man, Native peoples have shared a spiritual connection with mother earth; a belief that sustains us, shapes our cultures, and gives us faith.

My Name is Simon Baker and I am travelling the world to discover the unique relationship first people’s have with the environment by visiting fascinating native communities and cultures fighting to preserve their environment and way of life.

Join me in a journey to find hope in our traditional ways, and experience the wisdom, power, and passion of our Native Planet.


Simon travels to New Zealand’s North Island to see how science and indigenous knowledge are combining to breathe life back into a sacred lake decimated by years of industrial pollution.


Simon travels to Hawaii to examine the growing native sovereignty movement and how it helped halt construction of the largest public infrastructure project in Hawaii’s history.
