MAPAS, RAPOSA SERRA DO SOL

E GUARDIÕES DA FLORESTA

2020

The Maps of indigenous reserves alert us to the important role of forest preservation in Brazil. Where these reserves are located, we can see large green areas of forests not yet devastated by man.

 

In view of the ancestral role of indigenous nations in the formation of Brazil, I try to give a new meaning to the process they went through, with the aim of spreading their teachings about the multiethnicity of the people and their relationship with the environment. In 2017 and 2018, once a week, I was able to meet Guajajara women in an urban indigenous village called Aldeia Maracanã, next to the famous soccer stadium in Rio de Janeiro. My objective is to present, through screen printing techniques, some moments and knowledge acquired during these meetings with indigenous women.
