When Davi Kopenawa Yanomami leaves home, you know the world is in trouble

Date : 13th June 2009, Source : The Guardian (UK)



When Davi Kopenawa Yanomami leaves home you know something's wrong. He's a shaman, or traditional healer, from one of the world's largest largest groups of isolated peoples. Home is Watoriki, a village in the northern Amazon, deep in the forests and mountains near the Brazilian border with Venezuela. Davi leaves his orca, the great communal house where his village lives and sleeps, only to fight for his tribe. Twenty years ago, he came to London to alert the world to the plight of his people and the Brazilian rainforest.
