“The Nukak will always fight for our family. A big and terrible struggle”. Alex Tinyú, an #Indigenous Nukak person from #Colombia, recalls the story of when his people were forced out of their #forest more than 30 years ago. The Nukak's territory was invaded by missionaries, coca growers, settlers and armed groups. After contact, more than half of their people died from disease and violence. Today, the Nukak survive on the fringes of their territory, affected by severe malnutrition and malaria, and victims of sexual exploitation and drug addiction. ✊ But the Nukak are still fighting to return safely to their ancestral territory and to be able to thrive again as a self-sufficient people. #TribalVoice #NukakTerritory -- Listen to Alex's story and then take action for the Nukak now: https://svlint.org/Nukak-EN-YT -- Tribal Voice is a project by Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples. More than one hundred and fifty million people in over sixty countries live in tribal societies. From the Amazon to the Kalahari, from the jungles of India to the Congo rainforest, Tribal Voice gives them a platform. They experience appalling racism and genocidal violence. Their lands and resources are stolen for profit. Their ways of life are being deliberately and systematically destroyed. Here they speak out about what matters to them; watch, listen, and get involved: https://svlint.org/TribalVoice
