The indigenous people of the Amazon are the carriers of a profound vision on the world and nature
Unfortunately, they are under constant threat by another vision: that resources are there for those with power to take and use for their own gain and greed.
The story shows the deep spiritual connect between the river and the indigenous communities it nourishes. It also shows underscores the contrast with the other vision of greed—embodied by petroleum companies, oil palm estates, cattle ranchers, loggers, and new ‘leaders’ as Brazil’s President Bolsanero.
Oil exploration, starting with Texaco/Chevron, has created havoc. Much land and water is now polluted. Indigenous communities have taken them to many courts; and won on many occasions. However, the corporations simply refuse to admit guilt— leave alone taking remedial action or providing due compensation.
