A Brazilian Photographer Is Documenting Indigenous Tribes In The Amazon

Indigenous tribes are the most important connection between man and nature. These tribes have lived off the land before modern society and many have never interacted with modern society. Ricardo Stuckert is going through and documenting the indigenous Amazonian tribes in Brazil.

Ricardo Stuckert is photographing indigenous tribespeople in the Brazilian Amazon.

The indigenous community is something sacred that most people agrees should be protected. They are more connected to the land than we are. Their customs and traditions are more ingrained in this world than ours are and it is so important to protect them.

The indigenous community of Brazil has been subjected to horrible attacks and conditions from the Brazilian government.

One of the most widespread attacks against the indigenous Brazilians living in the Amazon has been for the land. President Jair Bolsonaro has tried to take land away from the indigenous communities to allow for logging and mining. A bill he sent to the congress sought to exploit the land for commercial purposes, even legalizing some of the attacks we have seen on indigenous people since President Bolsonaro took power.

Stuckert wants to preserve the indigenous culture and customs through photos.

“I think it is important to disseminate Brazilian culture and show the way that native peoples live today,” Stuckert told DailyMail. “In 1997, I started to photograph the Amazon and had my first contact with the native people of Brazil. Since then, I have tried to show the diversity and plurality of indigenous culture, as well as emphasize the importance of the Indians as guardians of the forest. There are young people who are being born who have never seen or will see an Indian in their lives.”

The photographer believes that using photography is the best way to share culture.

“I think that photography has this power to transpose a culture like this to thousands of people,” Stuckert told DailyMail. “The importance of documentary photojournalism is to undo stigmas and propagate a culture that is being lost. We need to show the importance of indigenous people to the world, for the protection of our forests.”

You can see all of Stuckert’s photos on his Instagram.

Stuckert’s work to documented the indigenous community is giving people an insight into a life many never see. Brazil is home to about 210 million people with around 1 million having indigenous heritage. The diverse indigenous community of Brazil is something important to showcase and that’s what Stuckert is doing.

Blue Ivy Carter Becomes One Of The Youngest Grammy Nominees For ‘Brown Skin Girls’

Updated December 14, 2020.

We’ve called her an entrepreneur, a singer, a BET Award winner and now we’re here to her a Grammy nominee.

Blue Ivy Carter is officially a Grammy-nominated artist.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 8-year-old daughter was nominated for her role in the song “Brown Skin Girl.” The young artist appeared in the video alongside her mother and WizKid, according to the Grammys website.

“Brown Skin Girl” became lauded as an anthem of positivity for the natural beauty of Black and brown girls. The nomination makes Blue, who turns 9 in January, one of the youngest nominees in history, according to Billboard.

Blue Ivy, daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, also added “audiobook narrator” to her resume this fall. Recently, the Hair Love author Matthew A. Cherry announced on Twitter and Instagram that the singer’s oldest daughter will narrate his children’s book’s new audio version.

With his announcement Cherry, shared a short clip of Blue’s voice, in which she introduced the book and herself.

Hair Love is being narrated by Blue Ivy Carter.

In the audio clip shared by Cherry, the young singer can be heard introducing the book. “Dreamscape presents Hair Love, by Matthew A. Cherry,” she says. “Narrated by Blue Ivy Carter.”

Hair Love is a story originally written by Matthew A. Cherry and published on May 2, 2019. Soon after its release, the book was turned into a short animated film won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film at this year’s ceremony. Cherry worked as a writer and co-director of the short animated film which follows the story of a Black father who learns how to do his daughter’s hair while his wife is staying in a hospital.

“I liked the idea of something that was centered around a Black family, because so often you don’t see that in animation,” Cherry, a former professional football player, told the Los Angeles Times about his book.

In his acceptance speech at the Academy Awards, Cherry said that he created Hair Love “we wanted to see more representation in animation — we wanted to normalize Black hair.”

Speaking about her daughter’s success, Beyoncé recently told British Vogue that she and her daughter love to share in each other’s accomplishments.

“When I tell her I’m proud of her, she tells me that she’s proud of me and that I’m doing a good job. It’s teeeeeew much sweetness,” Beyoncé said. “She melts my heart. I believe the best way to teach [my kids] is to be the example.”

In the interview, the singer shared that Blue Ivy’s birth was what actually inspired her to pursue the elevation of Black voices.

“From that point on, I truly understood my power, and motherhood has been my biggest inspiration. It became my mission to make sure she lived in a world where she feels truly seen and valued. I was also deeply inspired by my trip to South Africa with my family,” she explained.

The Hair Love audiobook is currently available now on Amazon.com.
