Avatar in India right now

An indigenous people, the Dongria Kondh of India, face the destruction of their lands and extinction at the hands of British mining giant Vedanta Resources as we speak.

The tribe opened their annual festival of worship on their sacred mountain to the media and activists for the first time ever in order to try and raise awareness of their plight. I can imagine the strength it must take to do this.

The UK mining company is determined to mine for aluminium ore on the Dongria Kondh's sacred mountain.
