Population Overshoot and Collapse in the Ancient Four Corners, addresses issues of sedentism, aggregation, depopulation, and climatic concerns of the pre-contact indigenous peoples of the Four Corners region of the United States. The film transports the viewer on a new and intimate journey from how did these ancient people live? What were their migrational patterns essentially about? How did they affect the environment and climate? And are we presently experiencing similar patterns of the hardship and violence that these ancient ones suffered?
