"Indigenous Peoples are united by a circle of life,
It's a circle of life that circles the Earth, waters,
the air, what you call... the environment.
We who believe are most familiar with nature ...
you must become our allies.
Do not fear us because the future of the
Indians is your future too.
And it is also the future of the planet."
Indigenous leader Marcos Terena
