Colombia’s Last Nomadic Tribe Struggles with Depression

Born into the last known nomadic tribe in Colombia, Joaquin Niijbe spent his boyhood roaming the jungle and hunting monkeys. His life changed dramatically 10 years ago when his tribe was forced off its rainforest reserve by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) rebel group. Now, 27 years old and a leader of the Nukak Maku tribe, he has seen how the clash with the modern world and the loss of ancestral homelands that were his forefathers’ for thousands of years drive many to alcoholism, drug abuse and even suicide.
