Alfonso Molina is an indigenous leader in Colorado de la Virgen, in Chihuahua, Mexico. He defends the importance of their tradicional customs and their way of life. The trees, pasture, wood and water that allow our animals to survive and protect the plants that they use for medicine.  They grow maize, peas, beans and potatoes depending on the season, and have goats, sheep and cows.  

"No one has the right to buy or sell our land.  It is the mestizos that want to buy it without consulting us.  But they have to have our authority and our decision.  We don’t want to sell the land, we want to live from the land and leave it to our children." Alfonso Molina
