Back to Earth: Standing with the Forest

In this episode we listen to Indigenous organisations fighting extraction and climate change and the artists working with them.

Indigenous rights, care of biodiversity, and ecological, multispecies worldviews are inextricably connected. Today’s episode features perspectives from self-organised Indigenous organisations at the front line of extraction and climate change, as well as artists researching our more-than-human entanglements. Released on the occasion of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, Standing with the Forest supports and platforms campaigns at the intersection of Indigenous activism and ecology.

Produced in collaboration with Flourishing Diversity. The episode features members from APIB, the Brazil’s Indigenous People Articulation: Tiago Amarral, Carolina Schneider Comandulli and Kerexu Yxapyry.; AMAAIAC members Poã Katukina, Yaká Shawãdawa, Pya ko and Busã Huni Kuin (Association of Indigenous Agroforestry Agents from the State of Acre); Chief Raoni Metukitre; Flourishing Diversity co-Founders Jerome Lewis and Jessica Sweidan, artists Maria Thereza Alves and Elaine Gan plus podcast hosts Victoria Sin and Lucia Pietroiusti.
