Between 2001 and 2005, the artist, curator and manager Andreia Duarte had the opportunity to live with the Kamayura people, in the Xingu Indigenous Park – one of the largest indigenous reserves in Brazil located in the state of Mato Grosso, Legal Amazon. She carried out different socio-educational projects with the community, such as the Mawaiaka School, the book Moroneta Kamayura – Kamayura Stories, the Awawojamena Ko project – Roça dos Jovens, as well as the management and organization of the Mawustinin Indigenous Association.


The experience deeply expanded notions about the body, art, history, politics, ethics, otherness, knowledge production and ways of existing. As well as the need for activism in the face of social tension and historical invisibility imposed on the reality of indigenous peoples in relation to non-indigenous society.


Throughout her career, Andreia maintains actions with the Kamayura people, expanding her personal and professional experience in partnerships with indigenous leaders, activists and creators from Brazil and the world. In more than 20 years of achievements, she has been strengthening the interrelationship between art, politics, ecology and epistemology of native peoples. She holds a PhD from the University of São Paulo and is the founder of Outra Margem,  with publication of books, articles, creation of artistic shows, performances, seminars, public interventions, direction and curatorship in different artistic projects.
