Ethnocide? (by Yekwanaman)

Chajudaña was the village of choice for hosting most of the inter-village reunions because it was the healthiest, best organized and most able to provide food for the other villages. The other indian villages chose Chajuraña repeatedly for these cultural events.

I recently received an anonymous comment that said I was guilty of ethnocide. Here is the comment ....

"The word ethnocide barely begins to describe the atrocities your ministry is inflicting on indigenous cultures along the Rio Caura."

Be sure and leave him a comment to encourage him!

Ay Rita.. this is completely embarrassing for me as a venezuelan.

What I understand is that they don't want the indians to be educated. Why? because an educated group is harder to dominate. That's what is all about.

They don't care about the infant mortality reduction, less drunks or eliminating prostitution among the indian girls.

They'd rather have them in almost savage state in order to maintain power over them. Because knowledge is freedom.
