    12. 12. 1: Water<br />“I know this water makes my baby sick, it’s yellow and smells like iron, but we have no alternative.” <br />“ Five more lakes have dried out this year and there were no fish in the mud.” <br />
    13. 13. 3: Fishing<br />“ He’s been looking for fish all morning (…) before the tributary had tons of fish, now it’s hard to feed our families” <br />“ Mestizo fishers are a threat to our livelihoods (…) their nets empty our rivers of small fishes (…) they poison the water.” <br />
    14. 14. 3:Agriculture<br />“ My rice is yellowing (…) when the river flooded it brought sand rather than mud (…) I’m afraid I’ll have less tons this year.” <br />“ Ten years ago I had beautiful bananas, not poorly developed ones like these (…) the flood destroys my bananas trees each year (…) since the big trees are gone, the soil is less fertile.” <br />
    15. 15. 5:Nutrition<br />“ During the flood all we would eat was Pan de Arbol because no bananas would grow.” <br />“ Fish porridge is a Shipibo’s favorite food but it has no condiments.” <br />
    16. 16. 6: Peoples Health<br />“Our traditional homes are uncomfortable (…) my wife wakes up with backaches (…) when it is cold we are completes exposed and get ill.” <br />7: Pollution<br />“When cars pass, they lift up all this dust that gets in everywhere, my clothes, food, and everything in my house.” <br />
