Instituto Raoni is the organizational face of the Kayapó, a Brazilian indigenous group that is leading the fight against unfettered deforestation of the Amazon. The group uses an innovative media strategy called the 'video warriors' project to document illegal logging in their territory and increase accountability in the most remote regions of the Amazon rainforest. Instituto Raoni also works to strengthen local food security and develop alternative livelihoods for indigenous people and has protected 2.5 million hectares of indigenous lands, including the largest remaining segment of the Amazon rainforest.
