“The Last Sentinels” is a 40-minute immersive experience that reconnects visitors to themselves, others, and the planet. It surrounds visitors in photography, film, animation, and sound, inviting them to follow the footsteps of Indigenous peoples and to celebrate them as models for better ways to live. A significant social, cultural, environmental message is carried throughout the show that promotes environmental and cultural guardianship focused on protecting the natural planet for future generations.

Through this interactive installation, visitors learn about the world’s last Indigenous cultures and regain the connection with the source of what it is to be human. Nelson aims to show us Indigenous populations are the living examples of understanding values of respect, unity, and living life to the fullest. In making “The Last Sentinels,” Nelson and his team hold up a mirror to humanity, asking us to see and reflect on ourselves through the eyes of the other, and confront us with an overwhelming call to action. Its purpose is to provide a radical intervention in rethinking our own values and behavior; our role within humanity.
