“YOUR PEOPLE DREAMED OF HUGE FACTORIES, TALL BUILDINGS, AS MANY CARS AS THERE ARE RAINDROPS IN THIS RIVER….NOW YOU BEGIN TO SEE THAT YOUR DREAM IS A NIGHTMARE.”  HOW MIGHT WE MAKE THINGS BETTER?  “THAT’S SIMPLE. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CHANGE THE DREAM…YOU NEED ONLY PLANT A DIFFERENT SEED, TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO DREAM NEW DREAMS.”
~ ELDER OF ECUADOR’S SHUAR TRIBE, 1991
