Indigenous Peoples of Sonora, Mexico, gathered during the Second Reunion of Spiritual Guides to consult on defending and protecting Mother Earth, water and other natural resources.
Yaqui face the theft of Yaqui water from the Rio Yaqui by Hermosillo. Further, a  dam could lead to forced relocation of Guarijios. The destruction of the forests for carbon has devastated the old growth pines in the land of Los Pimas. O'odham are battling gold mining and mega agricultural projects in the ceremonial community of Quitovac. Comca'ac (Seri) are defending their lands from increasing tourism.
