Inn Chret lives in remote Mondulkiri province, Cambodia. Mr. Chret is a Bunong, an indigenous tribe whose lives and livelihoods are becoming dramatically impacted by the Cambodian government's seizure of the Bunong's ancestral lands and sacred forests. Despite these hardships Mr. Chret is committed to supporting his people and giving them a voice through democratic means. As an elected member of the emerging Cambodian Indigenous People Democratic Party, the Bunong voice is now beginning to be heard. Listen to Mr. Chret as he discusses the rich history, and culture of the Bunong as well as the severe challenges that have forged an unwavering passion to preserve the Bunong way of life.
