About the Documentary
We Walk the Earth
speaks of Indigenous persistence in their homelands after more than 500 years of colonialism. It recounts struggles in Costa Rica for Indigenous rights to land, to self-governance and autonomy. Through the words of Bribri, Cabécar, Brunka and Bröran men and women, stories emerge of the pains suffered in the struggle to rightfully recover Indigenous Territories. The restoration of life and wellbeing through Indigenous Peoples’ stewardship of their land offers alternative ways to understand our relationship with the Earth.
