This work wants to show that the commitment to an extractive economic model is inspired by a plan of global domination of natural resources by some powers, which through economic neoliberalism, globalization and accumulation by dispossession; wants deprive Indians people from their territories. In that sense, they question the historical roots of development discourse that legitimizes such practices are questioned, and exposes the experience gathered in the field, whit outstanding educational processes, mobilization and resistance from communities in defense of life and environment.
