The Importance of the Time Frame: Preserving the future through Indigenous protection

In a scenario where concerns about the environment and the preservation of our planet become increasingly pressing, it is essential to discuss strategies that promote nature conservation and harmonious coexistence between human beings and the environment. In this context, the issue of the Temporal Framework gains prominence, reinforcing the importance of maintaining lands with indigenous protection as a fundamental pillar for the future of our nation and the planet as a whole.

The Inseparable Link between Indigenous Peoples and the Environment: The original peoples are guardians of an ancestral wisdom that understands the intimate connection between humanity and nature. Over generations, they have developed ways of living in balance with the ecosystems around them. The indigenous presence in their lands not only promotes the maintenance of culture and identity, but also translates into remarkable conservation of the environment.

The Preservation of Indigenous Lands as an Environmental Support: Data and studies have consistently pointed out that indigenous lands are spaces where biodiversity is preserved in a remarkable way. Respect for traditions and knowledge transmitted over the ages has resulted in relatively untouched ecosystems. According to the video "The Indigenous and the Environment" by Greg News, indigenous lands represent only 13% of the Brazilian territory, but are responsible for protecting more than 80% of the existing biodiversity.

Marco Temporal and Indigenous Protection: The discussion around Marco Temporal has raised important reflections on the ownership of indigenous lands. It is crucial to understand that the reference dates proposed by Marco Temporal do not consider the historical trajectory of these peoples and socio-environmental changes over the years. Keeping the lands under indigenous protection means guaranteeing the continuity of sustainable ways of life and the preservation of ecosystems.

By advocating for the protection of indigenous lands, we are not only respecting fundamental human rights, but also ensuring a more balanced and healthy future for the nation and the planet. Coexistence between humans and nature is a prerequisite for tackling challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss.

The debate around the Temporal Framework underscores the importance of recognizing and respecting the presence of indigenous peoples in their ancestral lands. The protection of these territories is not only a question of social justice, but also a commitment to preserving the environment for present and future generations. Valuing the wisdom of indigenous peoples and strengthening their connection with the environment is a fundamental step towards a more sustainable and balanced future.

In this edition of the Greg News program, "Marco Temporal", the presenter Gregório, presents in a very direct and assertive way what WE NEED to do to contribute to the future of the planet and so that we have the minimum of respect for these peoples. See the link below, it's worth the reflection and the dedicated time!

We also reinforce the importance of positioning ourselves at this moment, where we see the uncertainty of the decisions that are being taken by the STF. If our species, human beings, seek to co-exist and survive for much longer on this planet and with all the biodiversity we see today, we have to learn from the indigenous people on how to live with Nature.
