Coriland: The Forbidden Town
 is a fantasy that contains several messages.
It teaches us to overcome our internal fears and to trust who can help us in the face of adversity.

It teaches us not to belittle the native communities, in this case, the Amazonians, who have a different lifestyle but who struggle day after day to conserve their lands and culture.

It warns us of the care and protection of the
jungle. In recent years, it has lost more than two million hectares due to the afforestation of its forests; this has caused the harpy eagle, blue macaw, black caiman and other species to be in danger of extinction.

Illegal mining has contaminated much of the Amazon River with mercury, affecting public health, as well as the fish, reptiles and other species that live in it.

Calling us to awareness… What can we do to save the lung of the world?

Coriland: El Pueblo Prohibido es una fantasía que encierra varios mensajes.

Nos advierte a no menospreciar a las comunidades nativas, en este caso las amazónicas, que poseen diferente estilo de vida pero que luchan día tras día por conservar sus tierras y su cultura.

Nos enseña del cuidado y protección de la
selva. En los últimos años ha perdido más de dos millones de hectáreas debido a la deforestación de sus bosques; esto ha ocasionado que el águila arpía, el guacamayo azul, el caimán negro y otras especies, estén en peligro de extinción.

La minería i
legal ha contaminado de mercurio gran parte del río Amazonas, afectando la salud pública, así como de los animales que lo habitan.

Llevándonos a reflexionar… ¿Cómo podemos hacer para salvar el
pulmón del mundo?

Illari Sunkuyuq, whose real name is Veronica Carbajal Ezcurra, was born in Lima, Peru, on May 28th, 1982. She lived her childhood in Barranco district, known previously as the ‘Crib for poets and writers’, until she married. Graduated in Journalism and working for the first time in a Catholic radio station ‘Radio Maria’ and, afterwards, in the second most important radio station in her country, CPN Radio. She worked there for nearly eight years in various areas. She married in 2010 with an Austrian and left for Switzerland, where she studied German and French, and shared rehabilitation social groups with foreigners from other places in the world. Mother of two children and very passionate about poetry, literature, history, movies and music, the silence and tranquility in Switzerland made her miss her previous life, constantly active, something which her job demanded as a journalist in Lima. That’s the reason why she’s always alert about the news in the social media and information web portals.
“In July 2015, I had a revelation… I got up that morning and immediately took a piece of paper and a pencil and wrote the name ‘Kuntur’. I didn’t know its meaning but when I wrote it on the search bar in the internet, I was surprised that it was a Quechua word that meant condor, it was then I decided to write the first chapter of Kuntur: Fight for Freedom.”
