Listen to Hairani and Toraji, two nomadic Hongana Manyawa from Halmahera, Indonesia, decrying the destruction of their rainforest home by nickel mining companies. The Hongana Manyawa are a hunter-gatherer tribe, hundreds of them are uncontacted and are on the run from mining companies which are destroying their rainforest to get nickel for electric car batteries. It’s a brutal irony that the uncontacted Hongana Manyawa (who live the ultimate sustainable lifestyle) are being driven off their lands and seeing their forests destroyed in the name of a supposedly “green” industry. -- Act now: -- #TribalVoice is a project by Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples. More than one hundred and fifty million people in over sixty countries live in tribal societies. From the Amazon to the Kalahari, from the jungles of India to the Congo rainforest, Tribal Voice gives them a platform. They experience appalling racism and genocidal violence. Their lands and resources are stolen for profit. Their ways of life are being deliberately and systematically destroyed. Here they speak out about what matters to them; watch, listen, and get involved:
