Amazon – a virgin rainforest?

Latin America Colloquium (on site) with Juliana Lins, Brazil

 

Much is known about the importance of the Amazon Forest, the largest tropical forest on the planet, the importance of supporting its preservation and valuing the life and culture of the people who live there. However, little is said about the Amazon being a cultural forest,in which part of its biodiversity has been shaped by millennia of interaction between indigenous peoples and the forest. This long-term forest management did not destroy the forest, on the contrary, in some cases, it increased biodiversity.

In this colloquium you will have the opportunity to learn more about the philosophy and the way of living of Amazonian indigenous peoples as well the perspectives brought by the newly created Ministry of Indigenous Peoples in Brazil.

Juliana Lins is a Biologist and indigenist. As an Intercultural Research Analyst, she was a member of the Socioenvironmental Institute (ISA) in Northwest Brazilian Amazonia. During her Masters, she worked with ethnobiology researches, with interfaces in archeology. Actually, she is hosted by the German Climate Alliance as an International Climate Protection Fellow by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Amazonia, ¿una selva virgen?
Coloquio sobre América Latina (in situ) con Juliana Lins, Brasil


Se sabe mucho de la importancia de la selva amazónica, la mayor selva tropical del planeta, de la importancia de apoyar su conservación y de valorar la vida y la cultura de los pueblos que la habitan. Sin embargo, poco se dice de que la Amazonia es un bosque cultural, en el que parte de su biodiversidad ha sido moldeada por milenios de interacción entre los pueblos indígenas y el bosque. Esta gestión forestal a largo plazo no ha destruido el bosque, al contrario, en algunos casos ha aumentado la biodiversidad.

En este coloquio tendrá la oportunidad de conocer mejor la filosofía y el modo de vida de los pueblos indígenas amazónicos, así como las perspectivas aportadas por el recién creado Ministerio de Pueblos Indígenas de Brasil.

Juliana Lins es bióloga e indigenista. Como analista de investigación intercultural, fue miembro del Instituto Socioambiental (ISA) en el noroeste de la Amazonia brasileña. Durante su maestría, trabajó con investigaciones etnobiológicas, con interfaces en arqueología. Actualmente, la Alianza Alemana para el Clima la acoge como becaria internacional para la protección del clima de la Fundación Alexander von Humboldt.
