Description: http://www.actresslanka.comBefore the beginning of European colonization of the New World in the 15th century, an estimated seven to ten million Amerindians lived in American rainforests, half of them in Brazil. Great cities existed in the Andes, while the Amazon supported agricultural societies.The arrival of Europeans brought about the end of the native civilizations in Central and South America. Europeans carried diseases that killed millions of Amerindians, and within 100 years of the arrival of these outsiders, the Amerindian population was reduced by 90 percent. Most of the surviving native people lived in the interior of the forest, either pushed there by the Europeans, or living traditionally in smaller groups.

The Himba's history is wrought with disasters, including severe droughts and guerrilla warfare, especially during Namibia's quest for independence and as a result of the civil war in neighboring Angola. In 1904, they suffered from the same attempt at genocide by the German colonial power under Lothar von Trotha that decimated other groups in Namibia, notably the Herero and the Nama. In the 1980s it appeared the Himba way of life was coming to a close. A severe drought killed ninety percent of their cattle and many gave up their herds and became refugees in the town of Opuwo living in slums on international relief. Since they live on the Angolan border, many Himba were also kidnapping victims in the Angolan civil war Since the 1990s, the Himba have been successful in maintaining their culture and traditional way of life, and have experienced a resurgence. Many Himba now live on nature conservancies that give them access to tourism on their lands. Vengapi Tijvinda, a grandmother in her 50s, says: "Life is still the same, but the children can read and write. I am a member of [a] conservancy, and we have tasted game meat again." Even so the Himba have worked with international activists to block a proposed hydroelectric dam along the Kunene River that would have flooded their ancestral lands.. 2011, Namibia announced its new plan to build a dam in Orokawe, in the Baynes Mountains. The Himba submitted in February 2012 their protest ...
520 years have passed since the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus. That's over half a millennium - a lot in an individual human scale, not so much in the context of the history of mankind. During this time many things have changed, there has been a tremendous acceleration of development of our civilization. Thanks to an air transport the world has shrunk and near considerably, and the media (TV, internet) today enable to see distant places and learn about the world without leaving home. How deal with these changes the native population of South America and what it was for our discovery of their world? This theme is very interesting for modern ethnologists. They reach among other to remote corners of the Amazon Basin to look at contemporary Indian culture, try to understand it in its diversity and bring it to us. This track followed the anthropologist Marek Wołodźko, for which the reference group became the Bora Indians of the Peruvian Amazon. Being many times among the Bora, he recorded the state of contemporary culture of the people by images. Photographs, along with his comments, are located in the so-called mainstream of visual anthropology, the discipline which tries to say something important about the world through a photographic image. The Bora ancestral homeland is actually across the Putumayo River in what is now southern Colombia. Before the turn of the century, the tribe was semi-nomadic, residing in large communal houses in the upland forest. They ...

The Himba (singular: Omuhimba, plural: Ovahimba) are an ethnic group of about 20000 to 50000 people living in northern Namibia, in the Kunene region (formerly Kaokoland). Recently they have built two villages in Kamanjab which have become tourist destinations. They are mostly a semi-nomadic, pastoral people, closely related to the Herero, and speak Otjihimba, a dialect of the Herero language. The Himba breed cattle and goats. The responsibility for milking the cows lies with the women. Women take care of the children, and one woman will take care of another woman's children. Women tend to perform more labor-intensive work than men do, such as carrying water to the village and building homes. Men handle the political tasks and legal trials Members of an extended family typically dwell in a homestead, "a small, circular hamlet of huts and work shelters" that surrounds "an okuruwo (ancestral fire) and a central livestock enclosure." Both the fire and the livestock are closely tied to their belief in ancestor worship, the fire representing ancestral protection and the livestock allowing "proper relations between human and ancestor. Both boys and girls are circumcised before puberty, to make them eligible for marriage.
www.fertur-travel.com There are 72 ethnic groups or indigenous communities in Peru. Sixty-five of them live in the Amazonian jungle. The majority were converted to Christianity by Catholic missionaries but theyve maintained ancestral customs their art and language, their dances and cuisine. Theyve also retained extensive knowledge of the curative powers of plants, herbs and hallucinogenic beverages like Ayahuasca. The tea is prepared by a shaman. It was known to the earliest European visitors as a demonic drink but later explorers have sought it out as a drastic cure for a range of addictions. Scientists hope to use indigenous peoples extensive knowledge of the Amazons plant life to develop new medicines for a range of diseases and conditions.

Native cultivators in the Amazon have developed efficient and ecologically sound methods for making the tropical forest yield useful products. Their principal form of agriculture - shifting cultivation - has evolved into a system of land management with features worthy of careful study. Shifting cultivation essentially involves the cutting and burning of the forest to prepare a temporary agricultural field. Once yields decline after several seasons of harvests, the field is abandoned to secondary regrowth of the forest.
The story of the indigenous people, Achuar, who live in a remote and pristine part of the Amazon rain forest in southeastern Ecuador. The Achuar had no contact with the outside world until the early 1970's but now they are forced to band together and protect their forests and delicate environment from oil developers.

The Amazon rubber boom which began around 1900 meant disaster for the native communities of the Putumayo. Peruvian rubber corporations enslaved the Bora (and the Witoto, Ocaina, and Andoque tribes), forcing them to harvest the valuable latex from wild stands in the forest. Large numbers of Putumayo natives were wiped out during this epoch. The sufferings of these people are recorded in the appropriately titled book The Putumayo, The Devil's Paradise, written by the American explorer WE Hardenburg in 1912. Some years later, following Peru's loss of a border war with Colombia and the ceding of territory north of the Putumayo, many Bora were evacuated to their present homesites on the Ampiyacu. Today, fewer than 1200 Bora live in Peru, with probably less than half that number still in Colombia. There are less than a dozen communities in the Ampiyacu basin comprising Bora, Witoto and Ocaina natives. These are now permanent settlements with individual family homes. Bora agriculture is based upon shifting family fields in the forests surrounding the settlements. June to August is the period when fields are cut and burned in preparation for planting. The fields vary in size from .2 to .5 hectares, and are preferably made on the tops of small hills. The Bora choose from some fifty species of crops. Manioc and pineapple are planted in virtually all fields. Fruit trees, including peach palm (Bactris sp.), uvilla (Pourouma cecropiaefolia), umari (Poraqueiba sp.), caimito ...
