Our friends from the Center for Humans and Nature in Chicago, recently featured an essay by author Thea Riofrancos as part of our their Question series: How do we live respectfully with the land and with each other?
The series is curated and edited by Indigenous activist/scholar Julian Brave NoiseCat, who helped shape the Green New Deal.
In her deeply researched essay, Thea references the work of Ecuadorian attorney Juan Auz and Fundación Pachamama. She takes the reader from the courtrooms of Ecuador to the lithium-rich salares of Chile to examine how anti-extractive movements are transforming relationships between society and nature.
