Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth Series

A powerful film telling the story of the Uru-ewau-wau people and their fight to save the Amazon rainforest.

In our August conversation, we spoke to Sigrid Dyekjaer, one of the producers of a new National Geographic documentary film The Territory.

This film, co-produced by the Uru-eu-wau-wau community, follows the vital, inspiring fight of the Uru-eu-wau-wau people of Brazil to defend their land from non-Indigenous farmers intent on colonising their protected territory in the Amazon rainforest. What makes the film even more remarkable is that, as the pandemic hit and the region was closed off to any outside visitors, including crew, what should have stopped filming, instead inspired the filmmakers and the Ure-eu-wau-wau to pick up the cameras themselves.
