Maasai Climate Refugees In Kenya: Video Interview With Maasai Filmmaker

Maasai filmmaker Jemimah Maitei Kerenge, a participant in the Conversations with the Earth project, which trains indigenous people in video production, talks about the dire situation of her drought-devastated people. Their ancient culture, like many others around the world is being destroyed by climate change, their animals are dying and they are being forced to migrate in their thousands out of their acnesteral lands in Kenya into neighboring countries.
