Pirinop, My First Contact
“The Americas “first contact” is widely recognized as having occurred in 1492. For the Ikpeng Indigenous people in Brazil, first contact was a documented event that occurred in 1964 and eventually led to the relocation of the Ikpeng people to the Xingu park in Brazil, far from their traditional territory. With spellbinding footage from the actual event and personal accounts of first impressions, this compelling documentary offers a rare glimpse into that historic event from the Indigenous point of view and captures the incredible impact that contact had on the lives of the Ikpeng people and how it continues to affect them to this day”. - ImagineNative Film Festival, Toronto, Canada.
