Film crew examines American Indian culture
Cooney spent Friday morning and afternoon interviewing Waheneka and other local members of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. The footage will appear in an episode entitled "Sins of the City."
The filming schedule includes trips to Turkey, Sri Lanka, Peru, Cambodia, Mexico and other locations.
"Out of Egypt," is the brainchild of Cooney and her husband Neil Crawford. This episode examines the reasons humans moved from the hunter-gatherer way of life into farming in one spot and living in cities.
