  1. Thanks for giving some information about all this.
    I am working with Cultural Survival, we are looking to put together a story on the Nishiyuu Journey. Do you have or know about anywhere we could get some high-quality photos for the story, with permission? Thanks for any time and assistance you share.

    • Yes indeed! Are you on facebook? It would be worth poking around their group:

      Or you could try contacting Stanley Jason George, or the maker of this video, Benjamin Masty:

      • Thanks so much – I am on facebook (you’ve probably seen my response to your post by now). I have sent e-mails to Benjamin Masty, and I think to Stanley Jason George as well. My main concern with pictures from the facebook group is that I want to ensure that I have permission to use the photos in our quarterly publication.

        Thanks for all the help and support you’ve garnered for my search.

  3. Thank you so very much for livestreaming this event. I’m sitting in my house in Oak Grove, Oregon, with tears pouring down my face in gladness and gratitude for your efforts, all of you. And your languages are like music to my soul, I respond with as much courage and hope as I can. Bless you all, and thank you. Please stay safe, and may ottawa have the courage to listen.

Tribal Voice

Ever wondered what life's like in a remote tribal community? What tribal people have to say about the world? Tribal Voice, a project by Survival International, brings the thoughts and experiences of some of the most diverse societies on earth direct to your screen in real time. We're kicking off the project with tribes in Brazil. The Guarani, whose land has been stolen and destroyed by plantations and ranches, are now sending regular updates about their lives, and their struggle to survive. It's time to listen.
