The struggle for Indigenous sovereignty
As a colonial state, Indigenous communities in Brazil are also engaged in the struggle for land, making agroecology in Brazil also a decolonial struggle. Only recently has the broader agroecological movement started building relationships with Indigenous communities in support of more sustainable and fair food systems.
The Center for Studies and Promotion of Group Agriculture (CEPAGRO ) has started to develop a relationship with the Guarani community of Tekoá V'ya. In building relationships with the community, CEPAGRO offers to facilitate sharing of cultural knowledge that valorize their traditional dances and practices and their artisanal crafts, and supports food security in the community through agroecological food growing.
