Para un partido que se define de izquierda y cuyas prioridades son luchar contra la pobreza y promover el desarrollo en base a la cosmovisión indígena, esta es una paradoja. En la segunda vuelta del domingo 2 de Abril, el partido indígena Pachakutik apoyará al candidato de oposición Guillermo Lasso, un banquero de derecha. La Confederación de Nacionalidades Indígenas tampoco respaldará al partido de gobierno, Alianza País.

They move 5 to 10 times per year, building huts when the temperature is -40 and herding reindeer for transportation, clothing and food. “Before They Pass Away,” a long-term project by photographer Jimmy Nelson, gives us the unique opportunity to discover more than 30 secluded and slowly vanishing tribes from all over the world.

Amazon tribes

Most Indians live in settled villages by the rivers, and grow vegetables and fruits like manioc, corn, beans and bananas. They also hunt and fish, using plant-based poisons to stun the fish. Some tribes use shotguns for hunting, others use bows and arrows, spears, or blowguns with darts tipped with curare.

Only a few Amazonian tribes are nomadic; they tend to live deep in the forest away from the rivers. They grow some crops but rely more on hunting and gathering. Today, most Indians in the Amazon have access to ‘Western’ healthcare and education. What are their problems? Almost all the Indians’ problems revolve around land: outsiders either want their land, or something on or underneath it. Land = Life Indian tribes whose lands are respected generally thrive.

Brazil moves to prevent 'massacre' of Amazon tribe by drug traffickers

Fears for the tribe's wellbeing have been escalating since late July when a group of heavily armed Peruvian traffickers reportedly invaded its land, triggering a crisis in the remote border region between Brazil and Peru. On 5 August Brazilian federal police launched an operation in the region, arresting Joaquim Antônio Custódio Fadista, a Portuguese man alleged to have been operating as a cocaine trafficker.

But after the police pulled out, officers with the indigenous protection service (Funai) decided to return fearing a "massacre". They claimed that groups of men with rifles and machine guns were still at large in the rainforest. Reports suggest the traffickers may have been attempting to set up new smuggling routes, running through the tribe's land.
