PATAXO FEATHER EARRING
HANDMADE IN BRAZIL
Natural feather earring handmade by indigenous people from Pataxo Tribe in Bahia, Brazil.
In our modern world, they fight to keep their traditions. For food they go fishing and make cassava flour. Now they live in brick houses and they get their income from their craft, Brazilian tourism and support from non-profits. They live in completely harmony, with no crimes and jails.
Protecting and Respecting indigenous communities, their land, and their traditions is an invaluable resource in our efforts to combat climate change. Defending indigenous rights involves governments implementing policies that protect indigenous groups, corporations engaging in mutually beneficial relations with indigenous communities and the environment, and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) creating funding models and grants that help to support and grow indigenous societies.
