[español en los comentarios] «Waterfalls, rivers, forests… those are pedagogical scapes for us. Spaces for the education of our children. My dad taught me that way». For Serafín Paati, native Shuar pedagogue from the Bomboiza community, Morona Santiago province (Ecuador), the tropical forest is the space for teaching the values and the Shuar way of life. That’s why there’s been discomfort and concern for the ongoing mining activity near their territory, at the Tundayme community. These way, the extraction of copper will mean the destruction of their pedagogical landscapes. In this area of Ecuador there’s a constant propaganda pro mining, offering progress and change. This has split communities and families, plus it has begun the destruction of their Amazonia: classroom and home of the Shuar. #OnAssignment in collaboration to an ongoing investigation for the Universidad Politécnica Salesiana del Ecuador.
