Chile’s Easter Island uses the wisdom of its ancestors to help develop its future

Americas Now

Easter Island is a tiny dot of land in the Pacific Ocean located 4,000 kilometers off the coast of Chile.

It’s one of the most isolated islands in the world but its mystical, ancient sites and vast natural marine resources have put it on the map for centuries.

The natives of the island, the Rapa Nui, are taking control of their land and the management of its resources.

And as Correspondent Harris Whitbeck reports, they’ve implemented what some consider a model for sustainable development.
