Solomon Enos, Native Hawaiian

''The indigenous people have so much to share with this planet.  We are an important part of this earth.  We have been the guardians, and it is an important role with which we must continue.   We cannot let this responsibility fall into other hands.  We must not let the corporations take these resources because this is the legacy for all people, not just a few.'' 
Jesus Leon Santos, Mixteca
