Daris Cristancho , an indigenous leader of the U'wa tribe of Columbia came to the U.S. to speak both at a United Nations hearing on Indigenous Peoples and in Los Angeles. With only 5,000 U'wa peoples left and the oil corporations as well as the government of Columbia bearing down on them , the U'was have considered that they might disappear someday. Whereas other indigenous have written their language down , the U'wa feel doing so is partly responsible for some of the other indigenous having lost their identity and culture and for they're having become camposinos, Daris explains . So the U'wa have chosen not to write their language down in order to maintain their identity and culture . Yet they have a message for us. Daris updates us [04] on their ongoing struggle to preserve their sacred land and culture and their resistance to the oil companies and the government of Columbia.
