Ziel Karapotó

I am Ziel Karapotó, an indigenous of the Karapotó people, born in the Terra Nova community in Alagoas. I work as a visual artist, performer, audio-visual producer, photographer, curator and arts-educator. My work addresses issues of Indigenous identities and I use my body as a discursive and constructive tool for anticolonial thinking.
