The Lost Civilizations of North America is a compelling, 63-minute documentary by award winning filmmaker Rick Stout. The film examines why most Americans have never heard about the remarkably advanced civilization that once existed anciently in the Heartland of North America.

Emeritus Director of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History Roger Kennedy joins other scholars in explaining how this ancient civilization was lost to time through racial bigotry, misunderstanding, scientific agendas, and deliberate deceptions against the modern descendants of these ancient cultures.

Expert historians, anthropologists, researchers, linguists, archeologists, and Native Americans tell the story of this once great civilization, which existed before, during, and after the 1st century BC and AD in North America. You'll learn how sites and artifacts were dismissed, ignored, destroyed, and even hidden away for more than a hundred years‚ÄĒeffectively telling Native Americans (and the rest of us) that they had no history.

Modern researchers are finally uncovering the abundant evidence that still remains, bringing to light again the incredible story of this ancient civilization that rivaled all others of the world in its time.

In particular, historians and other experts explore the development of the once prevalent theory of cultural evolution (coincident with Darwinian evolution), and how this theory influenced the doctrine of "Manifest Destiny" and Native American policies that actually encouraged the wanton destruction of many priceless ancient structures and earthworks.

Lost Civilizations explores sites still existing, which show ample evidence of advanced civilization, and describes the amazing knowledge of astronomy and mathematics which it took to build these structures. The film shows many of the artifacts that have survived, the inscribed tablets, the copper and iron tools and weapons and other artifacts that reveal origins for these people that were purposely hidden away.

Glenn Beck featured this powerful documentary on his TV show, which aired in 2011. Watch a clip of what Beck said and view the documentary's trailer in the included videos.
