|Defending Our Lands – the U’wa Thank YOU!
After a four-year absence from the United States, the U’wa people of Colombia have returned to tell their story accompanied by Amazon Watch. Last week Aura Tegria Cristancho – a dynamic young representative and the U’wa Association’s legal advisor – traveled many miles from her traditional U’wa territory to meet with hundreds of people at a host of public presentations, private advocacy meetings and media interviews in New York City and Washington, DC. Aura had a clear mandate: raise the profile of the U’wa situation, recruit new allies and gather critical information that will inform territorial defense strategies going forward.
