Walking Between the Estuaries

This video was made by Indigenous representatives of the Comcaac community of Punta Chueca, who were trained together with Yaqui representatives during a participatory video training that took place in Vicam, Sonora (Northern Mexico) in August 2010.

Children of the Comcaac community of Punta Chueca plant mangroves to fight the erosion of the beaches near their community. As a result of climate change, mangrove swamps have dried up and the Infiernillo channel is becoming wider. The children explain that from now on they will do their best to take good care of the mangroves to protect their land.
