During a participatory video project facilitated by InsightShare, a group of Yaqui consulted their community elders to document how their local climate has changed and discovered that “water calls water”: after a dam was build in the mountains, the Yaqui river dried up and rains stopped coming. As a result, the Yaqui are suffering from very long and severe droughts making it impossible for them to cultivate their fields with their native crops.
