Umar Bashir Ochen is a young activist and member of the Karamojong tribe of Indigenous shepherds located in north-east Uganda. The Karamojong people face daily challenges including hunger caused by climate change, land grabbing, and a lack of food sovereignty. In conversation with Dylan Heuer, he talks about his culture and how it’s been threatened over the course of his lifetime. He discusses the organizing efforts he has led to introduce agroecology practices, start a farmers' market, and create local, national, and even international connections.
