Movements and Moments
For the Right to Exist

In recent years, the debate about Indigenous sexuality has grown and has been articulated by Indigenous people who identify as LGBTQIA+ and claim more visibility for their cause. Indigenous peoples in Brazil have resisted and struggled since 1500. The European invasion and colonization started a project of genocide and ethnocide of the native peoples and their cultures that still reverberates today. This short comic tells this story alongside the story of Yakecan Potyguara and Yacunã Tuxá, two young Brazilian lesbian indigenous activists.
