Indigenous peoples from São Paulo are mobilizing for a project that creates an environmental and cultural policy for their land – 11/02/2020 – Mônica Bergamo

Representatives of the Guarani communities of the Jaraguá indigenous people in the north of São Paulo and Tenondé Porã in the south of the capital of São Paulo are mobilizing to demand that the city government approve a bill for 2016 setting out a policy of strengthening the environment and the Culture of these spaces.


“We try to create a minimum of dialogue [com o Executivo e o Legislativo paulistanos] So that vetoes do not occur later when they are approved, ”says Tiago Karai, head of Tenondé Porã country. The group is also running a virtual campaign called # CinturãoVerdeGuarani.


The text, written by ten council members and already approved in a first vote in 2017, is awaiting a second evaluation by parliamentarians.
