PIPA Prize 2020 nominee.

My name is Isael Maxakali, I live in Hãm Kutok, municipality of Ladainha – MG. I’ve made a lot of movies for people everywhere to watch and know that we Tikmū’ūn exist. I also really like making drawings of animals, fish, yãmĩyxop spirits and other things too. I think that, with my work, I grow and strengthen the Tikmū’ūn. If I get known, they do too. If I win a prize, they win too!
