Event Details

Kuikuro Indigenous artists from the Brazilian Amazon basin will take over The Landing Hub, in Glasgow, for a day.

Indigenous filmmaker Takumā Kuikuro, traditional singer Yamalui Kuikuro and People’s Palace Projects will occupy the Landing Hub for a day of activities for all ages – films, music, indigenous language workshops – and a connection between young climate activists from the Xingu Indigenous Territories and the UK.

The Kuikuro are a community of around 650 people who live in the Xingu Indigenous territory, home to 16 Indigenous peoples who are at the frontline of the climate crisis.

The Xingu is a protected Indigenous territory in the Brazilian Amazon of more than 2.6 million hectares and home to 16 Indigenous peoples. The Xingu is the largest area of tropical forest in the “arc of deforestation” of the southern Amazon. Over the past decade, droughts, fires and intense farming on the territory’s borders have led to the destruction of rivers and forests. Furthermore, there is a relentless government campaign to dismantle indigenous rights in Brazil.

Takumã Kuikuro will showcase a programme of short films from his personal archive of over 10 years of filmmaking. Since his first experiences with filmmaking, Takumã has gone on to direct prize-winning films with widespread international recognition. These works document and preserve the stories, songs, dances and rituals that characterise Kuikuro culture, guarding against the possible erasure of his people’s history and knowledge of living in harmony with nature.

Traditional singer Yamalui will lead a public workshop on the Karib language, spoken only by the 650 Kuikuro people in 6 villages along the Xingu river.

People’s Palace Projects will host a panel about a cultural exchange between young people in Wales and young Indigenous people in the Xingu who are documenting their experiences of climate change and what it means for their way of life.

2.30-3.15: Kuikuro language workshop with Yamalui Kuikuro
3.15-5pm: Screening of Takumã Kuikuro’s films
5-5:30 pm: Takumã Kuikuro and Paul Heritage (People’s Palace Projects) in conversation
