Kichwa community leader on pandemic

This is a low resolution video, recorded and sent by phone from the Upper Napo region of the Ecuadorian Amazon, by Patricio Andi, who is a community leader.

It does not have very good audio, but that should not detract from the otherwise clear and important message. It is provided for general interest and as part of a collection of reference material for an article in The Conversation titled ‘How indigenous people in the Amazon are coping with the coronavirus pandemic‘.

Patricio speaks in Spanish – we will provide subtitles and transcripts soon.
