Transcript of The glaciers of the Andes are melting: Indigenous and Anthro

Author's Key Points

1.) the melting glaciers

2.) water shortages
- during the dry season, almost all the water supply in the Andes area comes from the glacier's high peaks.
- nearby mountain lakes and creeks disappear. The river will also no longer be able to irrigate the fields and meadows for this requires 70 percent of the water supply.
- water is also used to generate hydroelectric power.
- bad, lost harvests
- additional negative effects from multinationals building hotels and internstional mining companies destroying the glaciers.
- unclean water due to water and firewood shortages.

3.) solutions to improve the survival of the indigenous peoples and their cultures

How the Andes people created meaning in their situation:

Many myths and legends talk about "young courageous people who dared to face severe obstacles to bring much-needed water from snowfields and high mountain lakes to villages in the valley.
Water was sacred to the pre-Columbian civilizations. Same goes for many indigenous people today.

The restrictions and changes they had to do to their ancient Andean and Christian rituals. (E.g. The sanctuary of Qoyllur Rit'i)
