Tribesmen in the Amazon react to images of our world - Shames Many In Civil Society
This extract from a TF1 documentary is wonderful.
We asked them to react to images of our world of which they are so mistrustful.
We showed them the worst and the best.
At midday, they invited us to gather in the men's hut where women are forbidden.
Have you seen these images before?
Did you know that the white man had been to the moon?
Yes, we heard about it.
But why did you go there? What did you hope to find there?
What is the point of humans going there?
How do you feel about man walking on the moon?
It worries us.
The moon was created far from the earth so that we couldn't touch it.
The moon is there to provide light at night.
There were never as many eclipses before.
You must have disturbed it.
We've noticed changes here. It's getting warmer and warmer.
There is less cool air than before.
With your technology, you will kill the moon.
These are our gardens.
French style gardens.
What do you think of these gardens in comparison to the forest that you are used to?
It's not good what you do to your plants.
You are hurting them by cutting them this way.
We believe plants have a spirit.
It is wrong to treat them like this.
Cutting a tree is to make it suffer.
When we uproot trees for our cassava plantations we are sad.
The plants that you cut and trim, if you did not water them they would likely die.
Do you know what this is?
It's called snow.
In cold countries, icy white particles fall from the sky and men glide on them.
This is a white man's war. This is how white men go to war.
What do you think about this when you still use bows and arrows?
When we kill an animal, we feel sorry for it.
Can you imagine how we'd feel about a human?
What do you kill for? To eat?
Unless it is part of your culture?
But you have also gone to war with other tribes.
Yes but it's not the same thing.
You white men go to war to take something from this earth.
It's true, our ancestors did go to war like he said.
A child or a woman was stolen from us.
We would attack the tribe with our bows and arrows to steal a child or a woman.
But without killing the whole community or destroying everything with bombs like you do.
It's completely different. It's a form of trade.
You steal from me, I steal from you.
In fact, those who went to war were generally the cannibal Indians.
Do you recognise him?
Does the Chief know who this is?
No, we don't know him.
Zidane is a French football player. One of the most famous players in the world.
I wanted to know if Zidane could reach out as far as your tribe. Obviously not.
And do you know him?
Do you know who this is?
How do you know?
I saw him once on TV in the town.
How many of you know him?
Do the elders know him?
No, we don't know him.
Never heard of him.
He is considered to be the greatest superstar in the world.
They say that wherever you might be in the world, someone knows Michael Jackson.
Even in your tribe the young people know him.
It's the 11th of September. Two planes crash into towers in New York.
Would someone like to comment?
It's like the evil witches we have here. Those people have no mercy for anyone.
The people who did this have no heart and they don't even know who they are killing.
This is what we do with our old people.
In France, when people are too old, we put them in homes without their families and children.
What do you do with your old people?
For us the elders are sacred.
We really look after them.
We never abandon them.
They are our ancestors. We assist them.
The family cares for them until the end. There is no separate place for old people here.
We have to remember everything they have done for us.
From our birth, right up to our adult life.
These images sadden me. This would never happen here.
In France, when we want to tell a woman we love her, we kiss her on the mouth.
Do you do this too?
We never kiss on the mouth.
We talk and learn to get to know each other.
Then we see if it works.
How do you tell a woman you love her?
What signs do you show to let her know that you love her?
We take a woman in our arms and caress her.
If she doesn't refuse, it's ok.
Otherwise she pushes us away.
In the west, we had to create this drug to stop us from having children.
Have you heard of this?
We don't need to take medicine. We have what we need in the forest.
We even have plants that help with abortions in the first stages of pregnancy.
In some parts of the world, women dress like this.
Their husbands must be very jealous.
Aren't they warm dressed like that?
Your women live nude. How do you feel about these veils?
But how do they wash?
Do they have to stay like this inside their homes?
Are they allowed to take the clothes off or not?
After all, if it's their culture.
We have a lot of respect for singers that have the confidence to sing alone in front of others.
When the audience listens, it feels a deep solitude.
What do the young warriors think about Las Callas?
Does someone want to answer?
I will speak for the young ones.
This music is not our culture.
We do not know what it means. We can only watch and listen.
But it is touching.
I find it overwhelming.
Without understanding her, we can sense something sacred.
You all look magnificent with your customs and your rituals.
When you see images of the world, are you frightened of being consumed by it?
Of course, we are very worried.
If we allowed you to film us, it is so you can show the white people who we are.
We are extremely anxious for the future of our children.
How will they live?
We feel the pressure of the white man building up all around us and our forest.
Like it or not, we will resist and fight, so that you do not pollute our earth.
