and down the many tributaries we travel.
and preservation of the biggest trees, those eagerly sought by the lumber
our Shamans to the aid of villagers, medical assistance, paying for
operations for tribal people, donation of medicines and surgical equipment
to jungle clinics.
and financial assistance to tribal leaders.
of traditional tribal beliefs and practices.
of large tracts of rainforest lands for preservation.
of native people and their produce.
of items such as salt, seeds, steel agricultural implements, cash, medicines,
mosquito nets, sheets, fuel, etc. to remote tribal groups who have no
access to such things.
- But most
importantly, we bring our intense interest in their cultural traditions
and ancient knowledge, seeking out tribal elders, showing them the respect
and honor they deserve, stimulating the interest of the youth in their
ancient tribal knowledge and ways, encouraging the harvesting and production
of native medicinal plants.
