territory and lifestyle are currently endangered by mining concessions and
damn projects - and their direct influence on our culture. Our wish is to
maintain our traditions and spirituality by avoiding the acculturation and
evangelization that these phenomena convey. At the same time, we want very
much to integrate the modern world in order to survive in it. We wish to maintain
cultural sovereignty while establishing decent and reliable economic ties
with the western world. We hope for economic independency : this is why we
stress that our children be educated, to better protect themselves for generations
to come." Isaias Rodriguez, Headman.
