“After the ‘Massacre of Bagua‘, the relation between the Peruvian Government and the indigenous organisations reached a low point”, -explains Andres Noningo, 62, member of the Council of the Elders of the Wampis Nation. “When the Peruvian government speaks about development,” -he continues, “they mean the exploitation of our resources: gold, oil, wood. This threatens our livelihoods. That’s why we formed our autonomous government, to ensure a good life also for future generations”. The claimed ‘integral territory’ of the Wampis includes the underground – dwelling of Nunkui (mother earth) - and Nayaim (the sky), home of the ancestor spirits.
