The traditional knowledge of the Comcaac tribe and its understanding of ecosystem management are valuable contributions to the global heritage, as this tribe has positive environmental practices.

However, many governments around the world do not follow the example of indigenous peoples. Although indigenous peoples protect the environment, they are the ones who, paradoxically, suffer the harmful effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels, extreme weather events, droughts, forest fires, and coastal erosion.

Global pollution makes indigenous groups the most vulnerable ones in the world since they have no way to face this situation, and pollution alters the ecosystem of the spaces where they have historically lived.

Furthermore, indigenous peoples worldwide suffer the lack of recognition of their rights as peoples. They also suffer land dispossession and the negative impacts of climate change.


In the municipality of El Desemboque, in Sonora (Mexico), there are tons of garbage because this space is like a public landfill.

We must fight against this and other environmental problems, fight to defend the rights of indigenous tribes, and fight to improve their quality of life.

Traditional indigenous territories are home to about 80% of the planet’s biodiversity and at least 24% of the carbon stored on the surface of the world’s tropical forests. So, if global governments allow it, these indigenous peoples can play an important role in natural resource management and even help reverse climate change.
