Existence As Resistance: An Indigenous Voice From Brazil

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - 18:45

What are the threats facing Amazonian indigenous rights and environmental activists under Brazil's current far-right President, Jair Bolsonaro? Brazil is home to an immense diversity of peoples and cultures, guardians of ancestral knowledge, who today wish to share some of their wisdom and visions for a better world. With the rainforest burning across much of Amazonia, and in dialogue with Extinction Rebellion activists, tonight's speaker from the Tukano Amazonian tribe will survey the current indigenous panorama in her people's struggle to build alliances that can contribute to the protection of mother nature, cultural diversity and human rights across this vast region.
