The main goal of this project is to create audio-visual records and official documents that help to preserve the native American territory of a ethnic group called Yuhupdeh in the Amazon rainforest, who recently has their lands threatened by large mining companies.
Until Next Spring is a book documenting the struggles that indigenous people in Alto do Rio Negro face in order to preserve their own territory. The narrative focuses on the Yuhupdeh people whose ethnicity has been classified as "recently contacted" by FUNAI (Fundação Nacional do Índio - A government organization that stands for the interests of native americans in Brazil ). The Yuhupdeh are a nomadic group inhabiting the interior of the Amazon forest with communities forming near the banks of small streams. Due to geographical reasons, they occupy the lowest rank in the hierarchy of the people of the Alto do Rio Negro and are experiencing integration difficulties in urban territory.

We started our international campaign
My last few months have been very busy. I work alone and last month I just designed two cubans books editions commissioned by a major brazilian philosopher Marcia Tiburi and also put her philosophy school's website to work properly. Only now I can apply the attention that this project require. Seems fair extend a bit the campaign deadline ( 30/05/2017 ) until I be able to create and engage a international community around this subject. I also did several improvements on our website and our magazine. I hope you enjoy!
