Surviving...



Surviving..., originally uploaded by carf.
- Surviving the impossible of human development: 500 years of abuse, but how much longer will the Guarani people endure the changes and demands of the dominant world?

A major problem today for the indigenous people's healthy survival and integrity is how to address the imbalance created by the non-indian society, caused when one controls the indian's way of life by strictly demarcating very limited and inferior areas for them to live and practice their traditional way of life (whilst the non-indians continues to destroy more and more of their natural territory to sustain their own insatiable needs), creating dependency on irresponsible government assistance programs and forcing upon them the non-indian's economic system to be able to survive in this new unbalanced world (with not even the basic know-how or education to do so), also deciding how they are to live (exist) and showing very little respect for their peculiarities.

In such a scenario, the indigenous people's lives become merely a tough plight for survival, barely hanging on to their very personal spiritual customs, but far from living the "ideal" life they have lived for centuries, with traditions passed on from generation to generation.

Today the indigenous people of Brazil are imprisoned in the non-indian's world without the means to defend themselves. No matter what national or international legislation exists to protect their rights, the genocide continues......

Sobrevivendo...

- Sobrevivendo o impossível do desenvolvimento humano: 500 anos de abuso, mas quanto tempo mais irá o povo Guarani suportar as mudanças e exigências do mundo dominante?

Um grande problema hoje para a sobrevivência saudável dos povos indígenas e a integridade deles, é como lidar com o desequilíbrio criado pela sociedade não-indígena, causada quando essa sociedade controla a maneira de vida dos índios pela estrita demarcação de áreas muito limitadas e inferiores para que possam viver e praticar a seu modo de vida tradicional (enquanto os não-índios continuam a destruir cada vez mais o seu território natural para sustentar suas próprias necessidades insaciáveis), criando dependência de programas irresponsáveis de assistência do governo e impondo-lhes o não-índio sistema econômico para sejam capazes de sobreviver neste novo mundo desequilibrado (mesmo sem o básico know-how ou educação para fazê-lo), também decidindo como eles devem viver (existir) e mostrando pouco respeito pelas suas peculiaridades.

Em tal cenário, as vidas dos povos indígenas tornam-se meramente uma situação difícil para a sobrevivência, apenas segurando em suas costumes muito pessoais e espirituais, mas longe de viver a vida "ideal" que eles viveram por séculos, com as tradições passadas de geração em geração.

Hoje os povos indígenas do Brasil são presos no mundo do não-índio sem os meios para se defender. Não importa que a legislação nacional ou internacional existe para proteger seus direitos, o genocídio continua....
