Randy Borman was born only months before his parents, missionaries and linguists, ventured into the Ecuadorian rainforest to live among the Cofán natives. This set in motion a life that, over five decades, has helped shaped the Cofán community into a model for success in the struggle for biodiversity conservation and indigenous land rights.
On the eve of Nov. 25th, Randy will speak in San Francisco about the Cofán's rich culture and their ongoing battle to preserve it, then open to a Q&A discussion (Randy is perfectly trilingual: English/Spanish/Cofán). With an encyclopedic knowledge of Amazonian culture, ecology and Ecuadorian political landscape, Borman is a pioneer of the Save the Rainforest movement and one of the most fascinating humans you are likely ever to meet. Please come, bring a friend, and help us spread the word!
