INDIGENOUS WOMEN PROTAGONISM
Since time immemorial, we, indigenous women, have been using the knowledge that our ancestors (great-grandmothers, grandmothers, mothers) have passed on to us to take care of our families, our land, our rivers. That knowledge has crossed generations and has been used to guide the good living within our people. We are protagonists in this united fight for nature’s protection, for life’s protection in this land. This gift has been given to us so we can become guardians on Earth. In present times like these, we understand that this fight surpasses the borders of our houses, our “aldeias” (villages) and the territories we live in, because we are losing a lot of warrior women – without these warriors, our Mother Earth is vulnerable, so fighting for all women is also our fight, it’s a fight for the guarantee of life on Earth.
