« In their land, the white people have already cleared nearly all of the trees. They only keep a few patches of forest, which they have enclosed in fences … they now intend to do the same thing in our land.
I do not want my people to live in a remnant of the forest, or for us to become the remnants of human beings. »
- Yanomami shaman and spokesman Davi Kopenawa
What do the Yanomami and other Indigenous people think of gold and other resources of the forest that have been so coveted for over 500 years?
Please see the Yanomami shaman’s message here:PLEASE BOYCOTT GOLD FOR THE YANOMAMI! – Please give gifts that don’t destroy nature and the lives of indigenous peoples! – LISTEN TO THE YANOMAMI SHAMAN’S MESSAGE – THE PLEA OF THE RAINFOREST!
Yes, it’s so easy to buy items that harm Indigenous people and Nature at the other end of the planet!
We all need to boycott all products from deforestation; gold, palm oil, exotic wood, soy, beef, etc.!
For more information about these issues, please see:LAND BACK NOW! « Land for the Indigenous people has no commercial value, as in the private sense of civil possession. It is a relationship of identity, which includes spirituality and existence, and it is possible to affirm that there is no Indigenous community without land! »
