Puyr Tembé is one of the preeminent leaders of the Indigenous movement in Brazil. In early 2023 after President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva took office, Puyr was appointed the Secretary of Indigenous Peoples for the State of Pará. She has devoted her life to campaigning and negotiating on behalf of her people, the Tembé, and other Indigenous communities through political and social action in both her home state of Pará and the federal government of Brazil. Every year, she helps lead and organize Terra Livre and the Indigenous Women’s March, two of the largest annual Indigenous rallies in Brazil’s capital city of Brasilia. As Secretary, she has continued to be a fierce advocate of Indigenous women’s leadership and protagonism throughout Brazil and Indigenous communities, calling for more Indigenous women representation and access to education.
As Regional Coordinator for the Forest Guardians, Marçal and a growing number of Indigenous people conduct routine surveillance missions to protect their territories from illegal logging, mining, and land grabbing. Their work is largely unpaid, and very dangerous -- invaders have been known to shoot at them, and numerous Guardians have been assassinated. Marçal’s family worry for his safety, but continues on, so his children will have a territory to grow up in.
“We are always fighting for the forests that are still standing today. Guardians are protectors; we are the true protectors, of water, forest, and animals.”
EDIVAN GUAJAJARA | DIRECTOR, PRODUCER, CINEMATOGRAPHER
Edivan Guajajara is from the Zutiwa village, located in Arariboia Indigenous Land (Maranhão, Brazil) and one of the creators of the communication network Mídia Índia. As an activist & filmmaker, he creates photography and documentaries centering indigenous peoples’ perspectives, showcasing their struggle of land protection and defense of Mother Earth. As a designer and video editor, he uses his gift to create art pieces that give visibility to the ongoing fight of the Brazilian indigenous peoples, a people who have resisted for 521 years.
“Film has given us the opportunity to show our culture and our resistance. Today we have our own way of communicating and spreading our works so that people can know our true history and strengthen our struggle. My greatest inspiration as an indigenous is showing our reality and telling that we are also capable of being what we want to be, and showing to the world how much we indigenous peoples are important to the survival of our planet."
