TAYAK APU President of Sarayaku For more information, contact: José Gualinga, President, Sarayaku (593-8) 329-2734, tayjasaruta(at)sarayaku(dot)com In photo, above: Humberto Cholango, President of Ecuador's national indigenous federation CONAIE; José Gualinga, President of Sarayaku, and Sabino Gualinga, Kichwa spiritual elder (L to R) in front of the Inter-American Court, July 2011.

"For the first time in history, a canoe from the Sarayaku in Ecuador has arrived in France, the canoe of life," said José Gualinga, the former president of Sarayaku.

Inside an oval building with a thatched roof, we find José Gualinga, another of Patricia's brothers, who was then president of Sarayaku.
He is holding his ceremonial staff and wearing a black headband and a Che Guevara T-shirt. Gualinga is leading a discussion of how the community should pressure the Ecuadorian government to comply with the judgment of the Inter-American Court on Human Rights, which ruled in 2012 that the Ecuadorian government should have obtained the consent of the native people when it permitted oil drilling on Sarayaku's territory. José Gualinga says these struggles have bigger implications. That night, Sabino's sons, Gerardo and José, join us in front of a flickering fire to talk about Sarayaku's journey. José wears a white soccer jersey and his long black hair hangs loosely at his shoulders. José, president of Sarayaku from 2011 to 2014, led his community to take its fight to the Inter-American Court on Human Rights. Part of the court judgment required Ecuadorian government leaders to apologize to Sarayaku. I doubted this would occur, but José was insistent that it would. In October 2014, Ecuador's Minister of Justice, Ledy Zuniga, stood in Sarayaku's sandy community square and delivered an extraordinary message: "We offer a public apology for the violation of indigenous property, cultural identity, the right to consultation, having put at serious risk their lives and personal integrity, and for the violation of the right to judicial guarantee and judicial protections," she declared. Now, says José, "When the state says, 'Sarayaku, we are going to destroy you,' we have international witnesses. We can tell people the truth." José draws a distinction between Sarayaku's struggles and those led by leaders such as Nelson Mandela and Che Guevara. José peers into the fire.
