Nettle is a very important plant for Amazonian indigenous peoples. Despite its thorns, it is a healing plant, which helps to improve blood circulation, increase energy levels, and boost immunity. In collaboration with our indigenous partner Ceibo Alliance, we are supporting the revival and transference of ancestral medicinal plant knowledge in communities through the creation and distribution of didactic materials such as books and videos for children in schools.

Yesterday, as part of a historic lawsuit to protect their lands from oil drilling, dozens of Waorani women, carrying palm-woven baskets, clay pots, and food bundles from their garden, broke into harmonized – and unrelenting - song in an Amazonian courthouse, effectively blocking the proceedings in protest of unfair and discriminatory treatment by the judge. ⠀
⠀
The Waorani are demanding that the first court-hearing take place in their territory so that “the judge and the government can see firsthand how we live in our lands, and can hear from our elders about why we will not sell our lands to the oil companies.”⠀
⠀
The Waorani need our support more than ever to send a clear message to the Ecuadorian government and oil companies: their land is not for sale! Sign and share their petition today (link in bio).

Waorani women stand in front of the courtroom in Puyo, Ecuador, holding foods and plants from the rainforest. The judge denied their request to have the hearing held in their territory, so the Waorani decided to bring the forest to the courtroom.

Urgent alert: a hostile judge has ordered the first court hearing in the Waorani people’s lawsuit against the Ecuadorian government for tomorrow in the city of Puyo— ignoring the Waorani’s request that the hearing take place in their ancestral territory. This decision, which limits the participation of many Waorani in the hearing, is an example of the biased system the Waorani are up against in the battle to protect their rainforest home.⠀

It’s more important than ever that we stand with the Waorani. Please sign and share their petition demanding that the Ecuadorian government and oil companies respect their rights: link in bio.⠀
