For thousands of years, two semi-nomadic tribes, the Maasai and the Barabaig peoples have been living in harmony with nature in the drylands regions of Tanzania. In recent years, the country's government has been trying to institute new uses for these lands with little regard for the indigenous minority peoples who have existed successfully there for so long. This video documents the resulting struggle of these groups and highlights the solutions that they are attempting to implement.
