    • Synopsis
    • North of Argentina, in the province of Salta, we find Kajianteya. She is the authority (Niyat) of a Wichi aboriginal community. Through her words, we discover the tension between the two realities: on one side, a world of discrimination, dispossession and exclusion of the indigenous people; on the other side, the daily struggle for a dignified life that follows the ancestral mandates of cultural conservation, the recovery of the land rights, and the care of nature.
