BORMAN Fundación para la Sobrevivencia del Pueblo Cofan, Carcelén Alto, Quito, Ecuador Introduction In 1978, I was in a quandary. I had already spent 4 years fighting to achieve recognition for Cofan land rights at my home village of Doreno. I was deeply involved in the continuing process of establishing our legal rights as a community, and organizing our village to be able to resist the relentless colonization and destruction of our forest environment that had begun with the arrival of the oil companies in 1964.
We want to provide our own tour companies, our own biologists, our own management planners, our own indigenous political leaders. We want to cease to be the pawns of often well-meaning, but always outsider, organizations and institutions. We want to take our place as Cofans not only at the local level, but at all levels of management of our culture, its lands and its heritage. Thus, and only thus, will we be able to continue our culture’s relationship with our Forest for the next centuries, even as we have for the past centuries.
