In developing this teaching resource for the film, we like to especially thank Paul Munro and Jim Igoe for trying out teaching from the film in their courses on Political Ecology and Indigenous Landscapes/Anthropology, respectively. We also like to thank Sachiko IshiharaAsma Mehan and Ruben Hordijk for engaging critically with the film in their own course work. We have learnt from these scholars and students experiences.
