THE AMAZONIAN SOCIAL
RELATION TO NATURE  

An Open Access Environmental Humanities Digital  Project

Videos: Audio Visual preservation of Indigenous relations with land, languages, and culture. 

This project presents the Amazonian relation to nature by linking short videos of testimonies, stories, and songs to the names of the plant and animal species that are the subjects of the narratives. Videos are linked to the sensory mode through which the species is perceived or engaged in the video: sound (language, singing), sight (gesture, the visual arts), smell, o taste. Unlike still forms of documentation such as photography or writing, videos allow beter inisght into the sensory world of indigenous peoples living intimately with the land.
