The women of the Indigenous Kichwa Peoples of Sarayaku have played a crucial role in their community??s resistance to attempts to extract the energy wealth hidden in the bowels of their ancestral territory. Always on the front lines of marches, carrying their babies on their backs or in their wombs, the warmis (??women? in Kichwa) have raised their voice to say ??No!? to extraction and patriarchy. It is a double struggle for indigenous women of Sarayaku, who are determined to resist both the Ecuadorian State??s attempts to extract oil and the ancestral patriarchy they face in their community.
