On the 18th, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Mato Grosso, by means of Attorney General Guillerme Fernández Ferreira Tavares, opened a civil investigation to analyze reviews of abductions and clandestine adoptions of indigenous children residing in protected areas in Mato Grosso. The investigation was opened on the idea of complaints collected in the preparatory process MPF-MT No. 1.20.004.000079/2022-12.

According to the company, the assaults happened in the villages of Pimentel Barbosa and Etenhiritipa in Agua Boa. According to the denunciations – this DCM had permission – Missionaries recognized with the Atini NGO and the North American neighborhood Jovens Com Uma Missão (Jocum, Damares joined to type Atini) took children from the world to “assist” them, who had been allegedly struggling inside. in the villages, they had been accused of “psychological incapacity”, “penalties of extramarital intercourse” and “lack of circumstances to lift a child”.

Since then, in response to the grievance, indigenous children have by no means been returned to their dad and mom or clans of origin, and have been given up for adoption to {couples} recognized by missionaries from evangelical NGOs.

Only the MPF-MT investigation can inform if the allegation matches the facts. However, one factor is evident: the NGO in Damares collects such complaints.

For instance, in October 2014, the MPF (RJ) in Volta Redonda filed a public civil motion to ensure {that a} three-year-old indigenous baby might go to the Andira Marau indigenous land of the Satere-Mawe folks in Amazonas. , together with her organic mom and her village.

After the deduction, the indigenous teenager made a pilgrimage throughout the nation and gave beginning to a lady, who was misplaced on the fourth day after giving beginning.

For the MPF, the story of an indigenous mom and her daughter has been distorted till it seems because the shared charity of a middle-class couple from Volta Redonda for a weak baby with an incompetent mom. Actually:

This is one other instance of systematic motion by these missionary teams in opposition to indigenous peoples and their methods of life in order to unilaterally assert their understanding of indigenous tradition. According to prosecutors, quite than discussing the rights of a mom to take her daughter together with her, the case is a violation of the rights of the Satere-Mawe folks by the couple and the Jokum and Atini organizations.

YWAM is a world mission based in 1960, which started its work in Brazil in 1975 beneath the title Youth with a Mission (YWAM). Atini is an NGO based in 2006 by Damares and YWAM missionaries. indigenous folks with the aim of eliminating toddler mortality in indigenous communities.

Public Prosecutors Julio José Araujo Junior and Marcela: “Under the pretext of a humanitarian motion, these concerned contributed to the ethnic destruction of sure peoples and the violation of the human dignity of indigenous peoples, displacing them from their lands and residing with their very own group” Harumi Takahashi Pereira Biadioli.

Going even additional again: 9-year-old indigenous women in 2006 Muwaji and Inikiru had been taken from their tribe in the Amazon by a number of YWAM missionaries, Edson and Marcia Suzuki. Since then, they moved to the households of missionaries and misplaced contact with their folks.

Inikiru, now 24, lives with a household that runs a YWAM base in Chapada dos Guimaraes (MT) and is a missionary himself.

In January 2020, Inikiru launched a web-based crowdfunding marketing campaign to fund a mission journey to Turkey. In the textual content asking for donations, Inikiru says he comes from “an remoted individuals who kill themselves as a result of of an absence of hope.” “For me, the shortage of hope is the absence of the Gospel – I imagine that my folks might be saved by means of the phrase of fact in the Gospel,” mentioned an area lady, in an interview with the BBC in 2020.

Inikiru additionally mentioned he attended the School of Training and Discipleship (Eted), a sort of coaching course for missionaries, to “deliver this message to my folks”.

In 2020, the federal authorities despatched a workforce of “specialists” to contact an remoted tribe in the Amazon on a mission led by the Ministry of Women and Human Rights. He despatched Inikiru, an area lady raised in the YWAM sect, and “technicians” from Atini.

The British information firm BBC, which is following the case, tried to learn how the minister might ship “technicians” on such an essential mission, which occurred to be members of an NGO he based. So they had been informed, and they also reported to their readers, the British:

Atini says Damares left the group in 2015.

It was only a lie. On June 6, 2018, three days after his departure from Atini, Damares Alves was described as an indigenous trigger hero and a guide to the Atini suspects. Full informationOn the Bolsonarian web site, its columnists are parliamentarians Bia Kichis (PL-DF), Sargento Fahur (PSD-PR) and Carlos Jordi (PL-RJ).

The scene? Agua Boa and CanaranaIn the east of Mato Grosso, Xavante is the place the MPF-MT now locations a magnifying glass in search of kidnappings and hidden donations.

All this later – with out attracting the eye of the minister spotlights and the trustworthy, in order that the judiciary of Mato Grosso can decide the return of the kid to the custody of his father.


A narrative that has no starting and no finish

Damares’ dialog with the native folks appears to haven’t any starting. Long earlier than the Agua Boa episode, exactly on April 17, 2009, leaders of the Yavalapiti from Mato Grosso and the Kayapo from Pará denounced the unlawful adoption of indigenous children to the Human Rights Commission of the Chamber of Deputies. evangelical organizations: Brazil’s Atini Voz Pela Vida and North America’s Jovem Com Um Ideal (Jocum).

According to the bosses, these two establishments steal children beneath the pretext of stopping toddler deaths.

All this was broadly reported in the press of that point.

Ten years later, in 2019, already the Minister of Women, Family and Human Rights, Damares Alves, was accused by Camayura Indians from the Singu area of Mato Grosso of kidnapping a toddler from a village in 2005. over 20 years outdated, she was given as an adopted daughter by a former minister.

The lady was taken by Damares and Marcia Suzuki, a good friend of the minister, outdoors the village for dental remedy, and each pretended to be missionaries. The native lady by no means returned. The minister denied the abduction.

More essential than defining the start is the tip of the story. May the Federal Public Ministry in Mato Grosso succeed in its work.
