Stop Trying To Save Indigenous People

Updated: Nov 30, 2021

Indigenous people in Brazil mirror the situation of those displaced by war, in the sense that they don’t comply with the principle of dividing up land according to property ownership or national borders.

Perhaps instead of trying to save Other people from destruction, we ought to stop destroying. And this is work we have to do for ourselves, not for the other.

We need the eradication of the paradigms which threaten Indigenous peoples more than we need to tell Indigenous peoples we validate them.
