In this video [1] by SelvaRica [2], an artistic collective using multimedia to promote indigenous and environmental issues, a Naso Indigenous woman from Panama asks for help from the international community to put pressure and stop a Dam construction in their lands. The dam will flood their forests and change their traditional lifestyles, impacting their culture in what they view as a second conquest: first they were persecuted for their gold, today for their natural resources.
