When our Voices are Raised - From the Andes to the Amazone: a Guest in Indigenous Lands

A vibrant tribute to peoples who combine their ancient wisdom and original high-tech strategies to face up to today’s challenges.
A young correspondent at National Geographic Magazine France, Sylvie Brieu spent a year in the homes of the Quechua, Rapanui, Mapuche, Xavante, Surui, Uru-eu-wau-wau, Guarani, and entered the first territory in the world ever to be demarcated for an uncontacted tribe.

Thanks to both serendipity and exceptional access, Brieu immersed herself in the daily life of warriors, shamans, artists, peasants, filmmakers, poets, and singers, recording their appeal for transborder solidarity. Cutting through clichés about Native Americans, Brieu makes a plea for tolerance and celebrates diversity while bolstering her convictions with economic, political, scientific, and historical underpinnings.
