The Cry of the Earth conference at the United Nations was presented by Crescentera. It was sponsored by the Mission of Mexico, the Mission of the United States and the United Nations Centre for Human Rights.
These videos are offered with respect, and in honor of the Elders that participated in the Cry of the Earth conference, November 1993. Many of these Elders have crossed over, but their legacy remains. May their words continue to inspire through this unedited account. It is a fulfillment of a promise made to spread their message as widely as possible.
