Pau Brasil, Brazil, 1989.
Lives and works in Pau Brasil, Brazil.

PIPA Prize 2024 nominee.

Olinda Tupinambá is an indigenous woman from the Tupinambá and Pataxó Hãhãhãe peoples, journalist, curator, performance artist, filmmaker and environmental activist. The aesthetic and political artivism of Olinda’s work breaks with the stereotypes and racism that hang over indigenous peoples. Her work takes to the screen to echo the voices of ancestry, which denounce oppression and demarcate the existence of indigenous peoples. She shows that indigenous people are contemporary, living in the present time, seeking references in the indigenous past to resignify and update.
