Indigenous voters

With the objective of presenting information so that the indigenous people can participate in a more critical and conscious way in the electoral process, the document “Tem Aldeia na Política – Eleições 2022” (There’s a Village in Politics – Elections 2022) was produced. The official launch of the material will take place this Wednesday afternoon, 22, in remote format. The publication was prepared by the Amazon Indigenous School and Health Education Forum (Foreeia) and the Amazonian Mobilization Front in Defense of Indigenous Rights (Famddi), with support from Adua.

“Our commitment is to raise, through this publication, the debate in indigenous communities and organizations, helping to reflect on the importance of elections and how they can affect indigenous rights”, explain the entities in the presentation of the material, which is an updated version of the text published by Foreeia for the 2018 elections.

The importance of information and discussion, when the subject is elections, is stressed by the teacher of the Mura people Mariomar Moreira de Souza. “In order for us to really have political support we must do well-designed research, have debates, meetings with those who know, verify the proposals of those who are being appointed. We have seen, every day, our rights being taken away from us, and what have we done to prevent this from happening?”, the professor questioned.

Despite being officially launched on Wednesday, 22, with transmission by the YouTube channel and the Facebook page of the National Forum of Indigenous School Education (FNEEI), the “There’s a Village in Politics” is already in circulation and being studied through the different activities developed by organizations of the indigenous movement, according to the director of Adua, professor at Ufam and member of Famddi, Elciclei Faria.

“The distribution will be as wide as possible and as far as our legs reach, and they are legs that walk a lot, both among and by indigenous and indigenist organizations and within the communities, through teachers and Indigenous School Education teachers in Amazonas, in the Amazon and in Brazil, through men and women who militate in the defense of indigenous rights”, commented the teacher.

In addition to the delivery of the material, meetings and rounds of conversation are also planned, to present and discuss the document and the importance of individual and collective reading and dialogue about the content of the publication and its relationship to the reality of indigenous peoples. “The proposal is to ask: Why are the 2022 elections relevant to the indigenous peoples of Brazil? And that the greatest possible number of peoples think about this theme and respond”, said Elciclei.
