Quotes

"Our death rate is increasing. They want to develop us. To eradicate us. They want us to speak English. I do not think they see us as people (because) they need to but they think that we are just trees or stones. They build us a clinic but our people die of HIV and TB. When we were on our own, our death rate was low. Old people died of age. Now we go to funerals. It's terrifying. In 20 years its going to be bye bye bushmen."
...Yurí, Carabayo and Tikuna are genealogically related, with Carabayo somewhere in the middle between Yurí and Tikuna, but probably closer to Yurí. "The ease with which Carabayo data could be interpreted by a native Tikuna speaker additionally suggests that these languages are relatively closely related and may even form – or have formed in the past – a dialect continuum" , says Seifart. Original publication:
"Is it too much to expect the Brazilian authorities, given the billions they're spending on the (2014 soccer) World Cup, to sort this problem out once and for all, rather than let the Indians' misery continue?" Corry concluded. EFE
Also in The Ecologist: " Peru: Amazon tribes sacrificed to gas project"
