During the months of February and March of this year, Wiki Movimento Brasil (WMB) organized Wiki Loves Folklore 2023 in Brazil. That was the first time this contest was organized in the country and brought beautiful images to highligh the Brazilian culture. The winning picture is a photograph submitted by a Native Brazilian photographer of the Xakriabá people and depicts a pajé of the same people dancing and singing during the ritual of the Toré in the Xakriabá Indigenous Land in São João das Missões, municipality of Minas Gerais.
The winner photographer, with two more images in the top 10, is Edgar Kanaykõ Xakriaba, born, raised and resident of the Xakriabá Indigenous Land. His fantastic photographic work is the central topic of his Master Thesis in Social Anthropology at Federal University of Minas Gerais, titled "Etnovision: the indigenous look that crosses the lens" (2019), where he discusses photography as a tool for indigenous struggle and resistance. Edgar uses his talent to record his community, other indigenous peoples and their protests all over Brazil.
