Brazilian Indian Week to Stress Solidarity

    The Indigenous Peoples’ Week, which is celebrated every year by the Brazilian Indianist Missionary Council (Cimi) in April, will focus this year on the topic “Peace, Solidarity and Reciprocity in Relations.”

    The topic chosen for this year’s Week is in tune with the topic proposed by the Fraternity Campaign  of the National Conference of Bishops of Brazil, “Solidarity and Peace – happy are those who promote peace.”


    The proposed topic invites all the Brazilian society to reflect on the current reality and on the need to reconsider our lifestyles and nurture values such as solidarity and reciprocity in the relations between individuals, families, communities, and peoples.


    In the material prepared for the Week, Cimi says that peace “can only become a reality if fellow creatures, the ethnic diversity, and life are respected and promoted. May every person enjoy life fully.”


    The topic will be discussed by the indigenous movement, social movements, students, scholars and supporters of the indigenous cause in general in meetings, lectures and debates organized by Cimi in different locations in Brazil, particularly between April 17 and 23. 


    Besides these activities, Cimi is also producing posters and educational materials to be used as benchmarks for discussing the raised issues in detail.


    These materials can be found in the regional offices of the entity or in the Cimi website – www.cimi.org.br.
