*Kurzer Abstract
Much is known about the importance of the Amazon Forest, the largest tropical forest on the planet, the importance of supporting
its preservation and valuing the life and culture of the people who live there. However, little is said about the Amazon being a cultural forest,in which part of its biodiversity has been shaped by millennia of interaction between indigenous peoples and the forest. This long-term forest management did not destroy the forest, on the contrary, in some cases, it increased biodiversity.
In this lecture, you will have the opportunity to learn a little more about the philosophy and the way of living of Amazonian indigenous peoples as well the perspectives brought by the newly created Ministry of Indigenous Peoples in Brazil
