O Futuro é Indígena with WeTransfer

A portrait series of Indigenous leaders, activists and storytellers at Acampamento Terra Livre in Brazil
About the project
To celebrate Brazil's indigenous political resistance movement, Indigenous journalist and filmmaker Eric Terena— who was reporting on the ground for Indigenous-led storytelling platform Mídia Indigena—and British documentarian Alice Aedy, Earthrise, set up a temporary studio at Acampamento Terra Livre, Brasilia.

Whilst Indigenous communities are only 5% of the world's population, they protect 80% of global biodiversity.

Each year, thousands flock to the Brazilian capital of Brasilia for Acampamento Terra Livre (Freedom Land Camp).

Considered the largest assembly of Indigenous peoples in the world, the event gives an opportunity for members from the country’s many Indigenous nations to gather in solidarity, strategise and discuss solutions to their joint struggles—including the continued erosion of the rights of Indigenous peoples, the destruction of Brazil’s diverse ecosystems, and the worsening threat of climate change.
