Resistiendo Autoridad Colonial en Brava Gente Brasileira (2000) de Lúcia Murat
La directora Lúcia Murat ilustra el choque entre los indígenas brasileños, los guaicurus y los colonizadores portugueses en la película Brava Gente Brasileira (2000). Esta historia de lucha entre los guaicurus y los colonizadores pasó en el siglo XVIII que es actuado en la película por los kadiweu que son los últimos descendientes de los guaicurus. Los portugueses explícitamente abusan, asesinan, degradan y explotan a los nativos para usar su tierra y sus recursos. La comunidad indígena y sus personajes manipulados no son sumisos y actúan ingeniosamente para resistir y contraatacar a los colonizadores. La representación de esta resistencia recalca la vulgaridad y la hipocresía de los colonizadores como una narrativa que contraargumenta la pasividad que supone la historia del “descubrimiento” del “Nuevo Mundo”. Murat permite que su audiencia entienda este evento del encuentro entre Europa y su “territorio” colonial para reflejar cómo han afectado los espacios y vidas de las comunidades indígenas. Hoy en dia esos cambios se reflejan en los kadiweus que sobrevivieron la invasión brutal.

Native American Women In Activism
Native American Women in Activism will explore contemporary indigenous activism, with a focus on women’s roles within their community and how they utilize these roles in times of resistance. The intent being to show the female methodology of activism and how this methodology is shaping political movements throughout the indigenous world. There will be an emphasis on the cultural significance of traditional gender roles and the respected place that women hold in traditional indigenous communities, juxtaposed with the current high rates of violence against indigenous women. Showing that through their activism they are not only standing up for indigenous rights but reclaiming their traditional empowered female roles in their communities. Highlighting young female water protectors within the Standing Rock protest and showing how they used tradition, coupled with modern technology, to engage in nonviolent direct action. Using the film End of the Line: Women of Standing Rock, Directed by Shannon Kring, as the basis of this “new” method of resistance. This will be an extension of the research that was done for the Solei International conference, on the panel Indigenous Resistance Through Film.
