The Siddi People: a Lost African Tribe Still Living in India Today | Short Film Showcase

The word “Siddi” means  the enlightened one, but due to a caste system that sorts and distinguishes humans by the mere color of their skin, this native African tribe faces oppression every day. You see, just as in America many brown/dark skin people all over the world are simply outkasted over things they can’t control or change. When shown how supremacist views have affected the U.S., we should also realize that this isn’t solely an American problem, but a global problem.
