Dam Nation

This short documentary film focuses on three Dumagat activists–– Nanay Nene, Tatay Lope, and Chieftain Rodrigo and their continuous struggle to organize resistance against a Chinese-funded mega dam in Quezon. The Kaliwa Dam Project will displace numerous Dumagat and non-Dumagat families living near the dam site.

This video has been presented to Dumagats in Tanay and Quezon to remind them how in the past, Indigenous peoples have successfully resisted projects like this and that the Dumagats today have the option to resist too, if they so choose.
