Destination: Namibia

Expedition: Anthropologist and filmmaker Asha Stuart will document-- through powerful film and still images -- the little little-explored world of climate migration through the threatened Himba culture, and amplify the voices of the Himba people. The Himba women, a focal point of the project, migrate to the cities in higher ratios due to their skill sets in handicraft and jewelry-making, which they sell as street -hawkers to provide for their families. By bringing attention to the plight of the Himba people, this project will shed light on the effects of climate on human migration, and hopefully, also encourage the Namibian government to help address the plight of the Himba.
