Land or Death: Colombia’s Indigenous Land Wars | Indigenous Rights


Are from: Witness

A fierce Colombian woman defends her indigenous community in the world’s largest cocaine-producing region.

Celia Umenza is one of the most senior members of the indigenous civil defense force in the treacherous Cauca region.

Colombia has become one of the world’s deadliest places for land rights defenders since a power vacuum emerged after the government signed a historic peace deal with FARC rebels.

Now a grandmother, Celia longs to rebuild her troubled relationship with her family. But violence has returned to the area.

When a close comrade of hers is assassinated, Celia is forced to mobilize her community to protect the Natives preparing to retaliate.

Land or Death is by Sebastian Pena and Jesper Klemedsson Sotomayor.
