Description

Manari Ushinga of the Sápara people in Ecuador shares with us his people's view the natural world, our interconnectedness, and the importance of keeping the oil that lies underneath the Ecuadorian Amazon untouched. In 2013, Ecuador's President Correa ended the Yasuní-ITT initiative, and wrapped up the government's XI Oil Round, making it more important than ever that we stand up to protect the rights of the indigenous peoples whose communities and ancestral lands would be encroached on and polluted in the face of oil development, as well as the Amazon rainforest itself, which holds some of the richest biodiversity in the world.
