Storyboard Text

  • SET UP: "MARY" BOARDS A BOAT FOR THE INDIGENOUS CHAKMA VILLAGE OF HAJACHARA IN THE LUSH AND GREEN REGION OF THE CHITTAGONG HILL TRACTS OF BANGLADESH.
  • CONFLICT: FOR DECADES, THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLES OF THE CHT - KNOWN AS THE JUMMA - HAVE WITNESSED THE ENCROACHMENT OF THIER TRIBAL TERRITORY BY BENGALI SETTLERS -THEIR PRESENCE OFTEN IMPOSED BY THE FORCE OF THE MILITARY.
  • RISING ACTION: BUT AT LEAST ONE FACTION OF THE JUMMA HAVE FOUGHT TO PROTECT THEIR HOMELANDS. THE CHAKMA TRIBAL PEOPLE CONTINUE TO POLITICALLY BARGAIN WITH THE BENGALI GOVERNMENT, ULTIMATELY, FOR FEDERAL RECOGNITION AS INDIGENOUS PEOPLES AND TO FIGHT FOR THEIR TRIBAL RIGHTS.
  • Hey! We belong here and we were here first!
  • CLIMAX: "MARY" AND HER TEAM OF ADVOCATES ARE TRAINING VILLAGERS TO PROTECT THEIR TRIBAL TERRITORIES ON *THIER OWN TERMS*. "MARY'S NGO IS ONE OF DOZENS IN THE REGION FIGHTING FOR INDIGENOUS FREEDOMS.
  • INDIGENOUS SOVEREIGNTY SELF- GOVERNANCE
  • FALLING ACTION: THE GOVERNMENT OF BANGLADESH CONTINUES TO REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE THE JUMMA PEOPLE AS INDIGENOUS OF THE CHT DISTRICT AND SOME SAY, IT HAS EVEN INCREASED MILITARY PRESENCE IN THE REGION. MEANTIME, VIOLENCE ON JUMMA PEOPLE FROM SETTLERS IS INCREASING, MAINLY AGAINST WOMEN.
  • RESOLUTION: THE LEADER OF THE CHAKMA PEOPLE HAS INCREASED HIS HIS CALL FOR THE BENGALI GOVERNMENT TO FULLY IMPLEMENT THE 1997 CHT ACCORD BY MAY 01, OTHERWISE HE HAS THREATENED ORGANIZED NON-VIOLENT ACTION. MEANTIME, MARY AND OTHERS CARRY ON.
