Pachamama – An Alliance for the Indigenous Amazonian People


Check out the Pachamama Alliance Here

The Pachamama Alliance is recognized as one of the most effective organizations in protecting the rights of the indigenous people of the Amazonian Rainforest, the Achuar. This organization began with a dream. In the 1980’s, the indigenous Achuar people had a vision of destruction coming to their land. This vision came true with the invasion of the oil industries in Achuar land. The Achuar reached out for help from those in the modern world, and this request was answered. People from the modern world have teamed up with the Achuar to help protect their native land. Go to the link above to learn more about this organization.

  1. This a very good story, told from both sides of the cultures. I saw yesterday about the horrid pollution in China’s industrial belt where the smog levels are hundreds of times higher than is healthy, and how that same pollution comes across the pacific in only 5-8 days reaching the West Coast of North America. I am going to put a link to this in my Friday’s SSS link string. TY and BB.
