Research-Avatar, James Cameron joins Amazon Tribes

According to this article (link above) and the DVD. James Cameron spent time in Brazil with tribes to gain experience and inspiration to film Avatar. He join the tribes in defending the Amazon. Which soon made him the figurehead of the international campaign against Amazon destruction, Especially the multi billion-dollar Belo Monte hydroelectric dam project. As the government believe that this Dam will improve the country economy. But it would mean sacrificing the rainforest, where the tribes live. The tribe people will be homeless and their lifestyle would be different or would they even survive? Adapting to a new environment, as within their world technology is not needed nor is money.
According to the article it said that Cameron said "I felt like I was 130 years back in time watching what the Lakota Sioux might have been saying at a point when they were being pushed and they were being killed and they were being asked to displace and they were being given some form of compensation", from that it shows that he is experiencing something completely different, unimaginable like. Along he is getting really into/involve in helping the tribes, serious business which he cannot leave alone.
From my point of view, from all that Cameron has gained alot of experience and inspiration.
As this is similar to the Avatar storyline were the Navi is trying to protect home tree but the humans are destroying it. But luckily god is being nice to them and sent out a person from a different place to help them. Like Jake is from the human world, he helps the Navi and where Cameron is a person from the city and he helps the tribe people.
Nevertheless the film Avatar can also work as a advertisement, making more people notice about the Dam issue within Brazil. Hoping more people will know about it and help in protesting. Or simply making people see what the world has becoming to. Where everyone is relying on technology and cant live without it and slowly killing the world more.
I personally would not be surprised if our world ends up just like the one in Avatar, where its filled with technology and animal gets extinct, or the pollution gets ridiculously bad that people have to wear a mask out all the time .
