Brazil had the longest-lasting slave economy in the Americas, importing an estimated 10x as many enslaved Africans as the U.S. In a belated recognition of Black History Month, we will acknowledge the monumental importance of these four million enslaved people with a trilingual reading of Castro Alves' poem, "O Navio Negreiro" / "The Slave Ship".

This talk centers on two collective sound art practices of which Ariel Bustamante is a part of in Karukinka (Tierra del Fuego, Chile) and the Collasuyo, the shared desert of Bolivia and Chile. Over years of collaboration with members of the Uru-Chipayan nation in the Collasuyo and members of the Selk'nam nation from the far southern lands of South America, they have developed a creative practice around different spiritual technologies to affiliate with the non-human, including wind-people and peatlands.
