Patricia Gualinga, a Kichwa from Sarayaku in the Ecuadorian Amazon, is a leader in the struggle to prevent oil drilling on tribal land. She has become an iconic figure in the movement of Amazonian Indigenous resistance to the ravages of extractive industries in the rainforest, and was a key protagonist in the recent historic indigenous rights victory at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
