Sengwer Indigenous People / Kenya
VIOLENTLY EVICTED FROM THEIR ANCESTRAL LAND
The Sengwer people in Kenya have a deep, centuries-old bond with the beautiful Embobut Forest. But this Indigenous community of beekeepers and cattle herders is being violently evicted by the Kenyan government. Forest guards have burned homes and forced thousands off their ancestral land. One man has been shot dead and another seriously injured. The Sengwer are determined to resist – let’s support them.
