« Even though you and I are in different boats, you in your boat and we in our canoe, we share the same river of life. What befalls me befalls you. And downstream, downstream in this river of life, our children will pay for our selfishness, for our greed, and for our lack of vision. » – Oren Lyons, Seneca Nation
As the Yanomami spokesman Davi Kopenawa says in the chapter « Metal Smoke » of his book « The Falling Sky » – « Now the gold miners stink up the forest with the fumes from their motors and the vapors from the gold and mercury that they burn together. … it ends up making us sick. Its poison is fearsome. We do not know how to fight it. This is why we are so worried. … If the white people’s thought does not change paths, we fear it will kill us all, then poison them too. »
