I love this photo of Helena Gualinga (from her Instagram). She's a human rights and climate activist from Ecuador fighting to stop fossil fuel exploration in the Amazon.

I thought I had posted about her before. Anyway, I like, besides everything she stands for of course, also the contrast between her looking tribal one moment (when at home) and highly fashionable the next (for speaking engagements and such) (the things you have to do to save your land...) but especially how she combines the two.

I found some more photos on her own Instagram that illustrate that point.

Stop mining the Amazon! Protect this woman's land, and actually our whole planet.
