In the presence of:
- Davi Kopenawa, shaman and spokesperson for the Yanomami Indians of Brazil
- Almir Narayamoga Surui, leader of the Paiter Surui people of Brazil.
On the invitation of Sciences Po, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain and the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI).
The nations living outside the circle of industrial globalization, such as the Yanomami In-dians or the Paiter Surui, two Amerindian nations of the Brazilian Amazon, represent nearly 400 million people in the world according to a report by the IPBES on the state of the world’s biodi-versity, and make up a significant proportion of the population of certain countries and regions. Populating coveted spaces, they are often threatened. The competition for the appropriation and exploitation of natural resources of their territories often leads to tragedy, including large-scale destruction of tropical forests and their biodiversity. Today, these nations are creating protections for the preservation of the world's natural wealth: four-fifths of the world's remaining biological diversity is concentrated on their lands. This exceptional event welcoming two Amerindian lead-ers, who have come to testify from the Amazon as spokespersons of their ethnic groups and the ecological emergency, will focus on understanding their struggles and questioning our common future together.
