Puyr Tembé

Puyr Tembé, a leader of the Tembé Indigenous peoples from Alto Rio Guama in the Brazilian Amazon and the first Secretary of Indigenous Peoples of the State of Pará, is co-founder of The National Association of Indigenous Ancestral Women Warriors (ANMIGA) and is a lead protagonist of the new award-winning film “We Are Guardians,” which explores the work of Indigenous forest-guardians and Earth Defenders protecting the Amazon from illegal logging and mining. Puyr also works alongside other Indigenous women leaders, including Minister Sonia Guajajara and Federal Deputy Célia Xakriabá, to launch innovative initiatives to unite Indigenous leaders, policymakers and allies to ensure the full participation and leadership of Indigenous peoples, particularly women, in global climate negotiations on the path to COP 30 in Brazil.
