Description

For centuries the Van Gujjars have herded their buffalo between the forests of Uttaranchal and the mountain pastures of the West Himalayas of India following the rhythm of the seasons.  Reliant on buffalo for their livelihoods, the Van Gujjars are challenged by the demands of modern forestry.  Their well-preserved forests are coveted as National Parks, where there is no place for them.
