Fever produced by LifeMosaic, UK (2010)

'Fever - A Video Guide' consists of four short films for indigenous communities to raise awareness and build knowledge about the issue of climate change and how it relates to indigenous peoples, cultures, rights and territories. In these films, we hear the stories of indigenous peoples from communities in Ecuador, Nicaragua, the Philippines, and Indonesia. Fever and Resilience will be screened and followed by a discussion panel featuring Tarcisius Kabutaulaka (CPIS), Joshua Cooper (UH West Oʻahu), and Leonard Leon (ACM).

Fever (21 mins) explains what climate change is and why it is so important to indigenous peoples. Resilience (22 mins) shows the stories of five indigenous communities who are increasing their resilience to climate change and natural resource scarcity by strengthening their traditional knowledge, customary law and agricultural systems.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Pacific Islands Studies, Academy for Creative Media, Pacific Islanders in Communications, and Pan Pacific Association.
