“Issues as such represent a metaphor to the current global problems that are not only peculiar to the Kayapo people but highly relevant in Turkey and elsewhere. Climate change and infectious diseases such as Covid-19 are direct results of deforestation and agricultural policies on the part of so-called first-world countries capitalizing on the resources of the rest of the world. Therefore, as humanity, we are suffering the consequences of these policies at this point and time in our civilization.”—Pınar Yolaçan, April 2021
‘Tuire Kayapó’ (First Contact) is a moving portrait of the most important female chief of the Kayapó people, known for her environmental activism in the Brazilian Amazon since the late 1980s.
In her first interview ever, which took place on January 13th, 2017 in her village in Kaprankrere, Tuire speaks about the issues of the Kayapó people such as deforestation, expansion of the cities towards the Indigenous territories, demarcation, discrimination, national agricultural policies, public administration, corruption and infectious diseases as a result of all this.
