Eroi was forced out of his forest in 1986. He was a shaman, but he stopped because the missionaries told him that shamanism was the work of the devil.

A new report has revealed that 14 million trees were cut down in just one month in the Paraguayan Chaco.

The Chaco is home to Paraguay’s most vulnerable tribe, the Ayoreo, and is the largest South American forest outside the Amazon. Scientists have called it one of the most biodiverse places on earth.

The report by Guyra, a Paraguayan environmental organization, shows that 28,000 hectares were cut down in October. The Chaco is currently facing the fastest rate of deforestation in the world.

Part of this land belongs to the Ayoreo, who have been forced out of their forest home by cattle ranchers. Cattle firms...

Zika alarm rises after U.S. sex link, more Brazil birth defects | NewsDaily Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Zika alarm rises after U.S. sex link, more Brazil birth defects | NewsDaily: The virus, spreading quickly across the Americas, is usually transmitted by mosquitoes. But health officials in Dallas County reported on Tuesday that the first known case contracted in the United States was a person infected after having sex with somebody who had returned from Venezuela.

The WHO declared a global health emergency on Monday, citing a “strongly suspected” causal relationship between Zika infection in pregnancy and microcephaly, a condition marked by abnormally small head size that can cause permanent brain damage in newborns.

Health ministers from across South America gathered in Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, to discuss the public health emergency and how the region can coordinate its fight against the outbreak.

There is no treatment or vaccine for Zika.

Sexual transmission could add a new dimension to the threat Zika poses, but WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl stressed that “almost a 100 percent of the cases” are transmitted by the bite of a mosquito.

Adjunct Shaneen Fantin on the passing of Paul Pholeros - School of Architecture - The University of Queensland, Australia Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Adjunct Shaneen Fantin on the passing of Paul Pholeros - School of Architecture - The University of Queensland, Australia: UQ Architecture's Adjunct Associate Professor, Shaneen Fantin of People Orientated Design in Cairns shares her thoughts on the passing of Paul Pholeros.

"I was lucky enough to meet and work for Paul for a short time back in the 1990s – in my formative years as a graduate architect. He was a charismatic, wise, passionate and extremely generous man. For so many of my generation working in and around Indigenous Affairs and Architecture, Paul’s work is a cornerstone of common sense, human rights and respect. He would regale us with stories of his truck driving days and travels across the country and we were enraptured. He seemed invincible to me - his size, emotional strength and humility. The National Indigenous Housing Guide is one example of a seminal text that he created that is dog eared on my bookshelf. His methodology for hard work and earnest respect for all human beings is another."

URGENT: STRAIGHT MALE ALLIES NEEDED TO SHUT DOWN LEGAL RAPE “INTERNATIONAL MEETING Aboriginal News Group Newswire

This coming Saturday, February 6, at 8pm local time, followers of “Roosh V”- noted sexist, racist, homophobic, and overall horrible monster (not a human being)- will be holding secret meetings to rally for rape to be legalized. You didn’t read this wrong THEY WANT RAPE TO BE LEGALIZED.
This shit is dangerous af, and as they have barred anyone who isn’t male or straight, so we need all our white male allies to gather and shut this shit down. If you are a straight man of colour, please be careful. Even though the website says the meeting is for straight men of all races, the Roosh V following has also been known to be very racist and xenophobic.
Here is how the meeting will take place, as according to their website (I’m not going to link it because it does not deserve any hits, but all the info here is authentic- you may google and see for yourself):
We will have 165 meetings in 43 countries for our international meetup day on February 6, 2016 at 8PM local time. Hosts have been instructed to wait at the meeting point from 8:00-8:20pm before moving on to the final location. If you arrive at the meeting point at 8:21pm, you will miss the meetup. Arriving on time within the window is absolutely paramount.
To identify your fellow tribesmen, ask the following question to a man you suspect is there for the meetup: “Do you know where I can find a pet shop?” If you are asked this question, answer in the affirmative: “Yes, it’s right here.” You can then introduce yourself and get details about where to proceed at 8:20. If you ask someone for the pet shop and they appear confused or actually try to direct you to a real pet shop, they’re not there for the meetup.
If you are a woman, DO NOT GO, your safety is at risk. Roosh V has made it very apparent that your presence might be met with violence.
I won’t be able to attend a shut down (obvs- brown gay turban guy),...
