    Join us for a screening of award winning documentary IMAGES OF MY TERRITORY RAMA & KRIOL. In Spanish rama means “branch”. It is also the name of an indigenous people from Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast. About 2000 Rama have managed to survive over 500 years of colonization and exploitation, but their culture is difficult to sustain in an increasingly interconnected world. They share the coast with 600 Kriols, who are of Afro-Caribbean descent. True to its title, “Images of My Territory” explores the unique beauty of Rama and Kriol life and the enormous challenges they face as endangered peoples.

    A discussion with documentary Director José Wheelock (CEIBO R.L) and Indigenous Human Rights expert Sergio Pivaral (IBIS in Nicaragua) will follow the showing of the documentary.
