DescriptionOur ancestral authorities cry out in this ceremony. They mention that they do not want to suffer anymore and hopefully it will not happen again, because the companies are already in our territory only for our rivers, for our forests. That is why they pursue us. “God we want the companies to no longer enter. Do us this favor,” they plead in this ceremony that they celebrate.
