    • Rainforest Airforce: Indigenous Peoples Fly Drones to Protect their Land

      In August 2014, Tushevs Aerials (tushevs.com) traveled deep in the Peruvan Amazon to train indigenous leaders in the use of remote-control airplanes for the protection and monitoring of their rainforest. The workshop was hosted by AIDESEP, the country's largest indigenous peoples' network, with participants from the Loreto and Madre de Dios Amazon provinces, as well as from the Panama's Embera peoples. This technology enables communities to monitor and defend their territories against legal and illegal pressures. These are some images from the weeklong workshop, as well as raw footage that the drone captured while flying over the Pacaya-Samiria National Park in the Loreto Province of Peru. The music is a regional song called El LLanto del Ayaymama and speaks of a local legend of two abandoned children who the forest spirits save by giving them wings. Quite appropriate, we think. Thank you for watching. And a big thank you to AIDESEP, AMPB, Ford Foundation, and all the participants who made this a resounding success.
