The indigenous way of life and food story of an indigenous youth

“I live in a place where food is everywhere, while in the cities people are struggling for food. All I need to do is just walk or climb a tree to get a fruit. People would say it’s not just for them but these benefits are the result of thousands of years managing and protecting the nature and it’s not just good luck. The difference is that we as indigenous people, instead of building a five star hotel, we rather protect 100 beautiful trees. Also, instead of destroying the habitats of animals we admire and respect them. Yes, we also hunt but the vision we have is to take only the necessary just like what a jaguar does.”
