"When I was still a child, my grandfather used to take me by the hand to the top of a hill. He walked with a cane, but was still strong. He said, 'This is Shuar land and the one created it is called Arútam. When I die, you children must defend our land.' These words are deeply embedded in my memory" (Antonio Chiriap, Regional President of the Shuar Federation).
