Kayapo Kayapo Presentation Transcript

  • The Kayapo live in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil.
    They have lived in a sustainable way for thousands of years.
  • They use the forest for food
  • Live in settlements that are very set patterns. See if you can find out how they build their settlements and how long they live in them?
  • As well as food, they use the forest for shelters, medicine and collecting Brazil nuts.
  • Traditional ceremonies mark the start and end of every season.
    They believe in the Animism. Try to find out what that means?
  • They use the river for transport, water and catching fish. They started to protest in 2008 against the building of the Belo Monte Dam. This is still ongoing.
    What effects might the dam have on their lives?
  • Logging, farming, mining and hydroelectric power plants are all causes of deforestation that affect the Kayapo and damage biodiversity.
  • Eco tourism is one way that the rainforest could be used sustainably.
