BRAZIL

A VOICE FOR THE AMAZON’S INDIGENOUS PEOPLES



Based near the Colombian border in a town that can only be reached by boat or plane, Rede Wayuri (Wayuri Network) consists of 17 enterprising and resourceful journalists from eight Amazonian ethnic groups working together to investigate Covid-19’s spread in the region and provide information to more than 750 indigenous communities. They produce news bulletins in several languages which they not only broadcast by radio but also disseminate via WhatsApp, audio streaming platforms and even loudspeakers on cars.
