    • Synopsis
    • Millenary and warrior, the Yaqui Tribe, clings to existence. Laberinto Yo'eme is a documentary film about the difficulties that the Yaquis of Sonora face and their ancestral defense of the land and life in Mexico. Today they face a decisive battle. Since 2010, the government of Sonora, through the Independencia Aqueduct, has illegally diverted millions of cubic meters of water from the Yaqui River, causing a serious drought for the tribe and endangering their lives. At the same time, its territory has been flooded with drugs and violence. Yaquis seek an answer in the depths of their cultural identity.
