Amazon Hope joins together the specialists most intimately engaged with the Xingu and the diverse indigenous peoples who call it home. It aims to jointly consider the current crisis – the hardest hit portion of the Amazon – and communicate its vitality and importance to interested partners, potential donors and the public. The disastrous fires, which catapulted to the world stage recently, have plagued the region for a decade. They are the result of drought conditions, which have become the new normal in the arc of deforestation. Local fire prevention efforts have succeeded in curbing the collapse of the closed moist forests of the region, but far more is needed. Amazon Hope will help devise solutions, namely the creation of a southern Amazon indigenous “firewall,” a tool to protect the lands, forests, waters and cultural heritage. Technology will empower indigenous people themselves, who constitute a veritable army of committed individuals, zealously looking for solutions to defend against the decimation of their lands and livelihoods.
