    UN Representative Salasaca Aymara National President Nicolas "Miguel" Chango

    in Religion

    Salasaca Aymara Elder Nicolas Chango


    Past Salasaca National President Nicolas "Miguel" Chango at the United Nations--Indigenous Leader from Ecuador

    By Steve Grove


    June 16, 2004


    In one way or another, Nicholas Chango has been preparing for leadership since the day he was born. The elders of his tribe in Ecuador, the Salasaca, predicted that Chango would be a great leader, and commemorated his birth with many ceremonies. From an early age, Chango says, they put him through an intense training program that sometimes lasted 15 hours a day.


    Brought to a cornfield in the early hours of the morning, Chango was taught to listen to nature and pray to the sun.


    "[The elders] helped me to understand that all the land is interconnected, " Chango remembers. Later, these elders (called yachaj) wanted Chango to learn how to represent the Salasaca in Ecuadorian society. So they sent him to high school outside of the village.


    There, Chango came into contact with non-indigenous Ecuadorians and a society that has a long history of oppression of indigenous peoples. Spanish conquistadors came to Equador in 1534, taking control of the land and weakening the indigenous population with disease. Many Salasacan women were reportedly used as forced laborers. In the 21st century, conflicts between the groups have continued, as indigenous groups wrestle with the mestizo population for a voice in the country’s tenuous democracy.

    Diversity: A Failure

    in Politics

    The statements by many leading European heads of states--Angela Merkel, Nicholas Sarkozy, David Cameron, and others--has indicated that its not only common people, but even politicians in the establishment, who have to come to the conclusion that diversity and multiracialism has failed to work in the West. 


    Multiracial and multicultural societies have a long history of failing--Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Rwanda, Sudan, etc.. However, despite this long history of constant failure, the elite class of the West still continues to ply the general public of diversity's benefits.


    In this segement of "America in Focus," we will examine diversity and multiracialism in more focus, with the candid and scholarly appraisal of it from a leading academic, among others, who has written and investigated the matter extensively. Dr. Tomislav Sunic has risked criticism and ostracism alike to have written several articles and books, where he takes aim at the credo and mantra of the Western elite class.

    Palm Oil vs. Rainforests: A Tragedy in the Making

    in Environment

    Nicolas Alexandre, senior at the University of Arizona, President of the Palm Oil Awareness Initiative


    Kim Kelly, Ph.D. candidate in Anthropology the University of Arizona, Co-Founder and advisor/member of Palm Oil Awareness Initiative


    Stacey Tecot, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Arizona, Co-Founder and Academic Advisor of Palm Oil Awareness Initiative


    Did you know that palm oil is the MOST consumed edible oil today? And that because of its versatility, the demand worldwide has tripled over the last few decades. Palm oil is cheap and often substituted for cocoa butter and is semi-solid at room temperature. I like to think of it as one of those ingredients I call “what lies beneath.” It’s in lots of chocolate, frying oil, baked goods, breakfast cereals, cosmetics, personal care and cleaning products. Palm oil is in such demand that much of Southeast Asia, especially Borneo and Sumatra, have grown massive plantations of this crop – all at the very tragic expense of the rainforests and their inhabitants. Because of my deep love and respect for the rainforests, this show will be a tough one for me. But trust me when I say it will be one well worth listening to and I am ready for the challenge. This show sponsored by The University of Arizona.
