The Yanomani People and their Life in the Amazonian Rainforest
In this talk, artist Barbara Navarro will take us on a trip deep into the rainforest of Amazonia and the world of the relatively isolated Yanomami Indians who inhabit it. Over the past 30 years, Yanomami lands and way of life have been brutally disrupted by criminal invasions, attacks and disease. Greedy outsiders have invaded their territories in search of gold, building roads, burning vegetation, bringing malaria and other diseases, thus decimating the population while the governments involved turn a blind eye. We will learn both through a talk and through a short film what it is like to live among the Yanomani.
