A Defining Moment for Amazon Protection and Collaboration – Celebrated Indigenous leader Chief Dadá Borarí will embark on a European tour alongside Treesistance in June 2023. His mission is to shed light on the vital importance of protecting the Amazon and to emphasize the desire of Indigenous communities to collaborate and partner with Western organizations and individuals.
As the esteemed chief of the Maró Indigenous territory, spanning 420 km2, Cacique Dadá is widely recognized as one of the most influential leaders in the region. He gained global attention in 2022 when he was featured in the film “The Letter,” which portrayed him as the representative of the Amazon and Indigenous people during a meeting with the Pope at the Vatican. Additionally, as the Head of the Forest Guardian program for Treesistance, he plays a pivotal role in leading training initiatives across various territories.
Cacique Dadá’s European tour will encompass a series of impactful events, including a special appearance on the Green Futures stage at Glastonbury. The tour will culminate in the official launch of the Treesistance platform at the Moving Arts Centre of Amsterdam (MACA) on World Rainforest Day.
