"Apiyemiyekî?" is a cinematographic portrait that departs from an archive that Brazilian educator and indigenous rights militant Egydio Schwade found in his house, where over 3 000 drawings made during their first literacy process by the Waimiri-Atroari, a people native to the Brazilian Amazon, are currently kept. The drawings document and construct a collective visual memory from their learning process, perspective and territory while attesting to a series of violent attacks they were submitted to during the military dictatorship in Brazil.
