An archive of drawings made by the Waimiri-Atroari during their first literacy experience build a collective visual memory from their learning process, perspective and territory while documenting their encounter with “civilised man”.


ANA VAZ, born in 1986 in Brasília, Brazil, is an artist, film-maker and founder of the in(ter)disciplinary collective COYOTE. Her film-poems are underpinned by experimental collages of images and sounds, discovered and produced, to reflect upon situations and contexts which are historically and geographically marked by narratives of violence and repression.
