Her quote in the image reads:'If one cuts the roots of the tree, it dries out. Indigenous peoples are the roots of our planet, its foundation, traditions and life. If you destroy it, you will lose your past, your heart, your soul.'Locations:Europe-Kiruna (city)-SwedenDate:12 May, 2013Credit:© Christian Åslund / GreenpeaceMaximum size:1798px X 1200pxKeywords:Eye contact-Faces-Graphics (Record Type)-Headshots-Indigenous People-KWCI (GPI)-Oil (fossil fuel)-Oil (Industry)-Oil exploration-One person-Portraits-Save the Arctic (campaign title)-Text-WomenShoot:People's Arctic Conference PortraitsPortraits of indigenous people participating in the conference “The Peoples’ Arctic: Unified for a Better Tomorrow”, the second such conference hosted by the Save the Pechora Committee and Greenpeace, meant to connect Indigenous communities from around the Arctic and foster better relationships between Indigenous Peoples and environmental groups.On the eve of the Arctic Council meeting taking place on the 15th May 2013, 15 more Indigenous groups and individuals have signed onto a joint statement rejecting oil development in the Arctic. The coalition now includes major Indigenous organisations from every Arctic state, including two organizations that are permanent participants on the Arctic Council. The move demonstrates that there is growing opposition to Arctic oil drilling amongst the Indigenous communities who will be most affected by the industrialisation of their territories and would feel the first impacts of an oil spill.
