It is very hard to say that a tribe has been “killed” by deforestation, but populations have certainly been reduced.

Bathing, cooking, and cleaning in the dirtied waterways has caused high rates of birth defects and cancer. The devastation left behind by companies like Texaco, and acquired by Chevron, is ravaging communities.
