During a participatory video project, a group of Yaqui consulted their community elders to document how their local climate has changed and discovered that "water calls water": after a dam was build in the mountains, the Yaqui river dried up and rains stopped coming. As a result, the Yaqui are suffering from very long and severe droughts making it impossible for them to cultivate their fields with their native crops.

This video was made by indigenous representatives of a Yaqui community -- who were trained together with representatives of the Comcaac community of Punta Chueca during a participatory video training that took place in Vicam, Sonora (Northern Mexico) in August 2010.
