Churches invade Indio-Maiz Biological Reserve
Faith moves mountains. It is a popular expression frequently used in Nicaragua, however if we had to adapt this phrase to the current situation of Indio Maiz, we would have to say faith does not move but is rather pushing nature away by invading the limits and destroying it. We say this because some churches and the local representatives are also stealing land.
In the last few years we have seen how some religious temples have been constructed, especially evangelical, in the core zone of Indio Maiz. The shepherd, or the representative of the different religions, arrive to these settlements with the purpose of preaching and creating a congregation.
