For years, a foreign mining company has destroyed the rich ancestral land and culture in  Nueva Vizcaya, and divided its people. But it has also summoned the collective strength of the mountains and the  community to rise up. The Didipio community of Twali-Ifugao indigenous people set up a barricade and take risks, fighting for their life,  honour, and land.
