Owners of the Water: Conflict and Collaboration Over Rivers
DVD; Development Studies Collection
A central Brazilian Xavante and a Wayuu from Venezuela (both prominent politicians), and a US anthropologist explore an indigenous campaign to protect the Rio das Mortes river from the effects of uncontrolled Amazonian soy cultivation. The video highlights a civic protest that brings attention to deforestation and excessive use of agritoxins in unregulated soy cultivation.
