Thanks Cal; couldn't agree more, but this is something easier said than done, without a great deal of work from people who care.

Their right should be respected and they should not be disturbed. Before long big corporations will be plundering their land and destroying their lives.

I do hope that this actually means they can refuse to be exploited along with the land. Thanks for sharing.

Big business are always destroying forests and nature with no regard for the animals and indigenous peoples survival and freedom. Because most civilized humans are greedy, malevolent, apathetic, and corrupt.

These Big Oil, Mining, logging company execs should all be put in a third world prison till they die.
