2015 - Amazonia

 

First trip with Planete Amazone to the Cacique Raoni s village of Metuktire in Mato Grosso, on the banks of the Xingu River.  I attend the kayapo name-imposition ceremony or ‘Takak’.

Memorable!  However I also realized the disaster faced by the inexorable advance of soybean planters around their territory smoked out by the criminal fires.  I feel the great apprehension of Raoni at the startup of the Belo Monte dam not far away. I have a lot of trouble hiding my emotion and my distress when bidding farewell to Raoni. Nothing can take away this magical moments with him alone in the forest planting the cassava….
