"Our 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.
