Pan-Indigenous (Anti) Manifesto 3.4: Co-Creating a New Performance Declaration for the Americas

Propelled by the urgency of contemporary autonomous movements such as Idle No More, the Zapatistas and the Coordinadora de los 400 pueblos, we wish to highlight the challenges of these and other contexts and the need to respond. There is more that can emerge from a non-traditional manifesto concerning indigenous movements, including land and body sovereignty, poverty, ecological erosion, exploitation, healthcare, mass media and violence. This group will lead to the collective completion of a new art manifesto for the Americas and a live art performance intervention using an innovative new performance format generated by the work group.
