Living in the Central African forests, the Baka hunter gatherers formed an organization called Okani (meaning "rise up" in Baka) to help train other communities in filming and story-telling techniques. This first film from the Baka People in Eastern Cameroon shows how they are coping with the impacts of climate change and the swift transformations of their habitat. This film is an Okani-Insight http://www.insightshare.org production, part of Conversations with Earth Initiative http://www.conversationsearth.org . It is one of several experiences around the world in which indigenous communities are using videos to voice their concerns. These projects were funded by UNDP's human rights programmes through the Global Environmental Facility Small Grants Programme http://sgp.undp.org/
