On the occasion of the exhibition « Claudia Andujar. The Yanomami Struggle » at Fondation Cartier in Paris, Les Inrocks met with three key protagonists of the show and asked them to speak about their involvment in the struggle.
Photographer and activist Claudia Andujar is our first guest for this episode part of a series of three podcasts. Born in 1931 in Switzerland, her first encounter with the Yanomami people in 1971 changed her life forever. One of the largest indigenous tribes in the Amazonian forest, the Yanomami live between the north of Brazil and the south of Venezuela. Claudia Andujar tells us her life, her commitment, her hopes and her fear : how she met the Yanomami as they still enjoyed a preserved life, the quick arrival of a time of epidemics and brutal slaughters, and how that painful episode is revived today in the wake of the election of the current Brasilian President.
