The film "https://vimeo.com/77782364">Waking The Mammoth", which documents and honors the mammoths and ancient peoples that roamed North America tens of thousands of years ago, has raised new questions about human relationships to the environment through time. Author Craig Childs talked with KSJD's Tom Yoder about the mammoth petroglyph found near Bluff, Utah that is at the center of the film, and the parallels between the prehistoric peoples who created it and our modern cultural views on facing environmental change.
