Women from the Xingu Territory unite against threats from Bolsonaro administration

“We don’t think about selling wood or any part of the Earth to get money. We have so many ways to support ourselves that we don’t need to destroy anything.” This declaration came from Anna Terra Yawalapiti in her speech at the opening ceremony of the first summit of the women of the Xingu Indigenous Territory in the state of Mato Grosso, which brought together 16 native peoples in May 2019.
