This chapter discusses global resource wars and the movement of indigenous people against such wars. Global resource wars are the forceful privatization and commodification of land, resources, goods and services. Indigenous people across the globe are being forced off their lands in the war for resources. For example, the Yanomami tribe who are being displaced by the illegal mining of private institutions and the U’Wa tribe, who are being driven off lands by government sponsored paramilitaries and left-wing guerrillas. The indigenous peoples have formed a movement aimed at mitigating the physical violence of the global resource wars. These movements include: the Indigenous Environmental Network, the White Earth, Land Recovery Project, the Tebtebba Foundation, the International, Indian Treaty Council, and the Asian Indigenous Women’s Network.

Keywords:   global resource wars, indigenous people, Yanomami tribe, U’Wa tribe, Indigenous Environmental Network
