Save the Rain Forest for the Native Amazonians

Native Amazonians

The people who call the Amazon rainforest home are known as "native Amazonians". They live by a process called "shifting cultivation", where they live in one area and farm it and move on to a new area when the land is no longer cultivable. This method does not harm the forest and allows it to recover naturally.

The native people use the wood and foliage of the forest to build huge houses. They cut down trees to create farmland and gain the materials they need to build and feed the fires. The ashes from the fires are returned to the ground and provide all kinds of nutrients for the soil.
