When James Cameron starts shooting the next two films in the "Avatar" trilogy, he promises to bring a better sense of what it's like to truly live in harmony with nature.
Cameron has been involved in efforts to derail approval of the dam and raise awareness back home with the help of organizations like Amazon Watch. He produced a short documentary called "A Message from Pandora" that focused on the Belo Monte project and appeared on the "Avatar" DVD set.
Last week, he traveled with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to Belo Monte to introduce him to some of the indigenous peoples Cameron met last year. According to reports, Cameron met with five members of the Amazonian Caiapo tribe, including Chief Raoni, who named the director "Krapremp-ti," meaning "man who is friend of the jungle."
