As Ray A. Youngbear wrote in Black Eagle Child, “So that a few of us will celebrate and walk the full course of this gift called life, many will suffer.” This NBC video on the indigenous people of the Ecuadorian Amazon — whose destiny is wrapped up in our murderous demand for endless supplies of oil — is heartbreaking.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
