A Resistance diary of the Native Peoples of High Amazonia
Francisco Chumbía plays with his daughter on February 4th, 2015, at Chichis, Cantón Tiwintza, in the Morona-Santiago province. He is an ex Shuar soldier who was active in service for 10 years at the Intelligence division of Ecuador, and participated in the Alto Cenepa conflict in 1995. Francisco stepped on a mine, buried by his own army too close from the position they occupied. War spreaded mines all over the Condor mountain chain, provinces of Morona-Santiago and Zamora-Chinchipe; according to the Department of State of the United States of America, there were some 120 mines victims in Ecuador between 1995 and 1999.
