The Museum of Anthropology presents:
A conversation with Flavio Santi
Wednesday, October 12, 2016, 3:30pm-4:45pm
The Museum of Anthropology is hosting Flavio Santi for a conversation to learn about ongoing struggles against oil exploitation in the Ecuadorian Amazonia. All are welcome.
Flavio Santi (known to his people as Ayuy Yu) is a medicine man from the Ecuadoran Amazonia who works with Guayusa, Ayahuasca, and many other traditional plants.
For the last three generations his family has been fighting to keep oil companies from entering his traditional Shuar and Kichwa territories on the Pastaza River.
His latest effort includes an international campaign to buy titles to his people’s traditional territories and convert it to communal lands thereby halting oil well construction proposed by Shell Oil.
