The relentless pursuit of oil has reached the remote Peruvian Amazon and now the Achuar people find their way of life threatened by yet another oil company, Canada's Talisman Energy.

This video slideshow offers a glimpse into the life and culture of the courageous Achuar people of the Pastaza and Morona river basins in the Peruvian Amazon, who have succeeded for decades in keeping oil drilling out of their ancestral territory.
