THE CONDITION OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES are seriously overlook, they can not hunt or fish anymore, they are constantly patronized, the first world sending them aid, if that even happens, their lands are exploited by corporation.

It is so obvious to me that the problem is us, who live in the countries that benefit from the exploitation, rich, middle working class and poor, very few of us truly make an effort to change our consuming habits, and even if we did what would most of us eat? we would have to learn how to grow our own food,and if we are still working to get by, this becomes very difficult to maintain a way of life compatible with the manifested version of western civilizations utopia, there are alternative foods, like locally grown, produced or manufactured foods, but their are also the ones with less money, who rely on mass produced and cheap factory farmed animal flesh and the majority of these consumers are poor therefore a vicious circle of consumption an indirect and direct exploitation committed by consumer and big corporation.
