There is a Film screening and Q&A with Co-Director: Laura Graham Wednesday April 7th, 6:30 - 8 pm at Stanford University, Y2E2, lobby/ rm. 111 (see map Enter from Via Ortega) co-sponsored by E-IPER and Dept. of Anthropology; it's the first event in the 'Resource Extraction and Indigenous Amazonians Film Series'.
In 'Owners of the Water', a central Brazilian Xavante, a Wayuu from
Venezuela, and a US anthropologist explore a Xavante Indian campaign to
protect a river from the impacts of Amazonian soy cultivation. The film
highlights a civic protest showing the strategic use of culture to bring
attention to deforestation and excessive use of agritoxins in agricultural
industry. Featuring a diversity of opinions from both Xavante and
non-indigenous peoples, 'Owners' showcases the potential of indigenous
efforts to raise awareness about local issues while building networks among different native peoples and across nations.
