This chapter presents the author’s first-person account of a collaborative exchange sponsored by UNESCO aimed at enhancing the communication capacities of Indigenous peoples globally. She narrates her travel to Kenya and brief stay at the Il Ngwesi Lodge in August 2009, in order to record voice-in-video narratives from the Il Ngwesi Maasai community about their experiences in opening a community-owned ecotourism business. She also details the strong bonds of friendship that developed between herself, a Tewa woman from Khapo Owingeh (Santa Clara Pueblo) in New Mexico, and two African natives from Kenya: Shuel, from Il Ngwesi Maasai territory in north-central Kenya, and Yvonne, from Nairobi.

Keywords:   video, indigenous peoples, communication, Il Ngwesi Maasai territory, Kenya, video project
