Description

In 1974, the Endorois community were evicted from their land by the Kenyan government to make way for a game reserve and tourist resort. Years later, they were again evicted to make way for mineral mining. The Endorois community has taken its claim to the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, demanding recognition as a distinct indigenous group and asserting their basic human rights. This video presents personal stories of members of the Endorois community.
