Sigrun Lange
First announcement and call for papers and proposals - September 2001: Introduction: This international interdisciplinary congress will deal with the conservation of biodiversity in the Andes and Amazon Basin with focus on the countries Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. These countries are hosting an enormous cultural and natural diversity. The ecosystems are ranging from deserts to tropical forests. Between the two extremes there is a variety of plant formations: mangroves, lowland forests in the Amazon basin, tropical dry forests, relicts of Andean forests and scrub formations in the Paramo region. Biodiversity reaches its peak in the complex tropical mountain forests on the slopes of the Andes, which were declared as one of the "Biodiversity-Hotspots" world-wide (Nature, Vol. 403, February 2000). But all of the above mentioned ecosystems have in common, that they are threatened by logging, burning, grazing or other land-use activities. Although there is already a lot of knowledge about the importance and vulnerability of these ecosystems, the destruction is going on. The congress will provide a unique opportunity to join different groups being concerned with biodiversity: scientists, environmental organizations and local/indigenous people. The exchange of various viewpoints, requirements and knowledge, as well as the realization of the current deficits could facilitate the development of improved conservation strategies and a better management of the natural resources. Right now, the cooperation of science, NGOs and indigenous peoples is frequently insufficient. NGO representatives often do not know anything about the ongoing research in their working area, whereas indigenous peoples are sometimes not asked when management plans are established to protect special areas. For a long-term protection of biodiversity it is crucial to develop conservation strategies in a joint effort.

Occidental's impact in Ecuador and Peru
Peru Oxy has operated Block 1-AB, located in the northeastern region of the Peruvian Amazon and spanning more than 1 million acres, since 1974. This block is currently the most important oil producing area of Peru. The area is heavily polluted, with the Corrientes and Tigre rivers most impacted. The local Kiwchua, Achuar and Urarina peoples have been severely affected by the oil operations. The presence of the oil facilities and influx of migrants from other regions have resulted in a loss of traditional territory, deforestation of lands the indigenous peoples depend on, as well as an increase in violence and crime in the area. In addition, the regional hospital reports continual cases of oil-related illnesses among indigenous community members due to the ingestion of contaminated water. There are several indigenous federations in the area which have organized to demand that Oxy remediate the area and compensate the affected populations, FECONACO being the strongest and most vocal. Ecuador Oxy has operated the 500,000-acre Amazon Block 15 since 1985. Current production wells fall within the Limoncocha Ecological Reserve and Quichua indigenous homelands, both of which have suffered deforestation and toxic contamination as a result of the oil operations. Oxy is now opening up the eastern and more remote region of Block 15. Over the last two years Oxy has come under fire from local indigenous communities, including the Secoya and Siona peoples, for their plans to build oil facilities in the fragile region and open roads into wilderness areas. Environmental organizations have also documented Oxy's systematic steps to divide indigenous communities in order to obtain approval to operate in the area.

71. Communities From Philippines, Peru And Indonesia Confront Newmont At Shareholder

Volume 5, Number 8, May 16, 2000 project underground home site search COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES CONFRONT NEWMONT AT SHAREHOLDER MEETING
Community representatives from Peru, Indonesia and the Philippines came together in Denver, USA for the week to confront Newmont Mining Corporation. Two representatives each from Peru, Indonesia and the Philippines, including three indigenous people, spoke out about the impacts of gold mining on their land and culture to shareholders and laid out their demands to the company.
In Peru, indigenous peoples of the Northern Andes have seen their land dug up for Latin America's biggest gold mine run by Newmont and known as Minera Yanacocha. They have suffered the pollution and loss of their water sources and traditional cultural practices are also being lost as people are forced to move from their communities to the city of Cajamarca.
"Before the mining company came, we lived a clean, healthy life. That's no longer true. Now all our flora and fauna are gone. To us our mountains are sacred, but now those mountains are gone because of Newmont," said Segunda Castrejon of the Rondas Campesinas Femeninas of Northern Peru.
When asked why he was in Denver, Anwar Stirman, a fisherman from the coastal community of Buyat Bay on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia said: "This is about our generation, our future. If I didn't get involved in this movement, what would happen to our children?" The people of Buyat Bay can no longer eat the fish that were once their livelihood due to the submarine tailings disposal method practiced by Newmont which has poisoned the fishery. They are also suffering from a variety of skin diseases and malnutrition because their traditional crops were destroyed to make way for Newmont's Minahasa Raya mine.

To: UN Member State Delegations at the Fifth Committee of the General Assembly, 56 th Session
10 October 2001 Dear Sir/Madam; We, the undersigned Indigenous peoples and organizations, would like to draw the attention of the General Assembly to questions related to the budget for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. Allow us to also draw your attention to the fact that Indigenous peoples worldwide (1) want the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues to have a Separate Secretariat; and (2) want the Secretariat of the Permanent Forum to be staffed by qualified Indigenous persons.
Financing of the activities of the Permanent Forum:
The success of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues depends very much on the financial arrangements for its activities. We hold the view, that it is crucial that the General Assembly, through the Regular Budget of the UN, provide the necessary financial resources for the functioning of the Forum, including the establishment of a separate secretariat. Moreover, we strongly encourage governments to support the functioning of the Permanent Forum through voluntary financial contributions.

More than 15 Vientamese students have earned degrees at the University of Oregon in the past ten years, many of them Masters degrees. At the same time, Dr. Proudfoot has led numerous field schools to Vietnam giving both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students at the University of Oregon the opportunity to work collaboratively with people internationally.
The Center for Indigenous Cultural Survival has been working with the Indigenous peoples of Vietnam throughout this time. Meeting and working collaboratively with Indigenous peoples of Vietnam, the Center has begun initiating exchanges between students and community members. The purpose of these exchanges is to share our cultures and our unique was of survivng within larger nation-states so that we may strengthen eachother to survive and prosper as the Indigenous peoples of our place.

New guidelines developed for health workers in indigenous communities
Washington, DC, August 30, 2002 (PAHO) - Three new guidelines for the application of the strategy of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) in indigenous communities are being prepared by the Pan American Health Organization here. After an intense week of work, experts have completed draft guidelines to facilitate the task of health workers and achieve better access to indigenous populations. These include:
  • Guidelines for community health workers that adapt the IMCI childhood illness strategy to conditions and needs of indigenous children. Guidelines for facilitators of the courses. Guidelines for implementation of the IMCI strategy.
These materials, based on intercultural care models, aim at improving health services responsible for care of indigenous children, and will be validated in pilot projects. In a work session on health of indigenous peoples, organized by the Pan American Health Organization's Health of Indigenous Peoples Initiative, experiences in child health and the use of the IMCI strategy to improve the health of the indigenous children in Peru and Colombia's indigenous communities were reviewed. The Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) strategy promotes three main components: improving the case management skills of health professionals, improving the quality of the health system required for effective management of childhood illness, and improving family and community practices.

76. The International Forum Vol. I, Issue 1
The protracted and costly struggle of indigenous peoples in peru no doubt providesan inspiring lesson and we hope President Toledo's keynote address via video
Volume I, Issue 1 February 2002
I am an indigenous person, an Ogoni from an oil rich land. Thousands there have been impoverished and murdered for asking for their rights, like my colleague, Ken Saro-Wiwa, and I know that partnering with others is a virtue. Working together for a common cause can give a powerful political voice to individuals and groups who are all too accustomed to being silenced. Some indigenous peoples are skeptical that the recently established UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples will fulfill this unifying function and seriously address their situation. This is why the Partnership for Indigenous Peoples Environment, PIPE , is sponsoring the Indigenous Peoples Global Conference (IPGC) on Constructing Inter-Group Networks and Relationships: A Framework for Peaceful Co-Existence in Modern States , the first step in our 10-year project designed to make a difference. We seek to develop the appropriate tools and productive strategies to ensure that the real issues that face the indigenous peoples of the world are the priorities at the Forum and to give organizations a platform to forge alliances. President Alejandro Toledo of Peru, himself an indigenous person is a landmark example of how indigenous peoples can become engaged in Modern State Process to have their voices heard. The protracted and costly struggle of indigenous peoples in Peru no doubt provides an inspiring lesson and we hope President Toledo's keynote address via video at the conference will encourage others to continue their own struggles for self-determination and human dignity.

Protecting Indigenous Peoples' Privacy
from "Eyes in the Sky"
Wayne Madsen
Lead Scientist

Integrated Systems Division
Falls Church, Virginia Abstract 1. Introduction In his famous dissenting opinion in Olmstead v. U.S., 277 U.S. 438 (1928) , Justice Louis Brandeis called the right to be let alone "the most comprehensive of rights and the right most cherished by civilized men." Justice Brandeis's ruling could just as easily apply to the right of indigenous peoples to be let alone from intrusive central government "development" and surveillance programs. The increasing use of satellites to survey lands and oceans for natural resources comes at the expense of many indigenous peoples to freely conduct various activities on their ancestral lands. Many indigenous tribes maintain a certain kinship with the territory upon which they live. This kinship runs deep and in some cases has an important religious significance for the people concerned. 2. Geographic Information Systems (GISs) and Indigenous Lands Indian leaders contend that those who operate GISs must be sensitive to the traditions surrounding their lands. Many Indian tribes feel that certain data must remain private and not be released to the general public. Data security and privacy controls therefore become problematic. Tribal officials such as the Colville Confederacy leadership feel that certain data cannot be treated as regular data. Information on hunting and gathering areas has a spiritual significance for the Indians that is perhaps unappreciated by statisticians in cold, gray and distant computer rooms (Marchand and Winchell, 1994, 51).
