Ethnographic Collaboration on Indigenous Environmental Activism: The Making of Owners of the Water
A talk and film showing by Dr. Laura Graham
Thursday, November 21, 5-7 p.m.
Cuneo Hall, Room 109
Dr. Graham will show and discuss her film, Owners of the Water, which examines efforts by Xavante indigenous activists to protect a river in the Brazilian Amazon from the effects of uncontrolled soy production. Dr. Graham's film was made in collaboration with the Xavante and with a Wayuu indigenous film-maker. Among the issues the film examines is how the Xavante deliberately use their culture to draw attention to the use of agrotoxins in the Rio das Mortes, how the Xavante build networks with different Amazonian peoples, and how they promote indigenous modes of knowledge about the environment. A preview is available here.
