Indigenous village: Krukutu

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

A convite do escritor Olívio Jekupé que conheci no seminário de escritores indígenas no Rio de Janeiro visitei a aldeia Krukutu, onde ainda vivem à volta de 30 famílias do Povo Guarani. A aldeia fica apenas a 40km do agitado centro de São Paulo na área de protecção ambiental de Capivari-Monos. Estas famílas vivem numa contradição cultural, entre a evolução das cidades do branco e a sua herança indígena ancestral.

This year my book “Os Lugares de Maria” was released in Brazil, because of that I was invited to return to this amazing country. I had the opportunity to share the Encounters Project, the Poka Pokani book´s collection, Eva, Maria and many places through where I have spent my days of stories in the last years, in the children´s book fair in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was five full days of many encounters and in last day: one hand full of stories from resistance from the indigenous writers. Uau!
