Our Land Our Future (2000) from Earth Links, Inc. on Vimeo.

Our Land, Our Future is a documentary by Ed Schehl and Katherine Knight about indigenous land rights and environmental issues in Nicaragua. By showing seldom-seen images of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua and its indigenous peoples, it helped to pave the way for the Rama Nation to receive a land title to approximately 1 million acres of their traditional lands.

The film was a second place winner in the Costa Rica International Environmental Film Festival. Proceeds helped to fund the first successful lawsuit in Central America making indigenous land rights a human right. This program was televised on the Free Speech TV Network.

Produced by Earth Links and Three Americas (formerly Coalition For Nicaragua).
