Reclaiming Indigenous lands in the Amazon – enough is enough. Last week, the @nacion.siekopai (Secoya) nation of Ecuador’s Amazon took action to recover their ancestral territory from illegal settlers. This video captures this historic moment for the small nation declared at risk of physical and cultural extinction, whose ancestral territory is surrounded by palm oil plantations, ranchers, and oil fields. In full exercise of their rights to territory, self-governance, and self-determination, community leaders, youth, and elders from six communities gathered on Wednesday in the invaded area of their territory along the Kokoya river – covering about 200ha of once pristine rainforest – and pacifically reclaimed their land.
With the illegal settlers now evicted, the Siekopai now face the challenge of rewilding the important headwaters of the Kokaya River after a decade of cattle ranching, poaching, and illegal logging. We stand with our Siekopai partners in this struggle in defense of their lands, lives, and ways of life!
