Bioneers 2024 Conference

Reforesting Hearts and Minds to Protect the Amazon and Mother Earth

Hosted by Amazon Watch

Join Puyr Tembé, First Secretary of Indigenous Peoples of the State of Para in the Brazilian Amazon; Celia Xakriabá, a Federal Deputy in the Brazilian Congress and a co-founder of ANMIGA (the National Association of Ancestral Indigenous Women Warriors);  and Leila Salazar-López, Executive Director of Amazon Watch, in an intimate and inspiring conversation about the power of Indigenous women’s leadership to protect the Amazon and all of the biomes of Brazil. What began as seeds of resistance to deforestation and land-grabbing for industrial extraction has grown to a national and international movement to reforest minds and hearts to defend Indigenous land rights, respect women’s rights and protect Mother Earth. Learn how you can join the movement. “The fight for Mother Earth is the Mother of all fights!”
