On July 9, the CEO of the Xavante Etenhiritipá Association (AX), Jurandir Siridiwe and researcher Fernanda Viegas Reichardt met in São Paulo with the Regional Prosecutor of the Republic of the 3rd Region (4th CCR / MPF) and Manager of the Water Connection Project of the Federal Public Prosecution Service, Sandra Akemi Shimada Kishi.

The reason for this meeting was to initiate governance and initiate a formal dialogue with the Federal Public Prosecutor about the project's objectives & #8220; Payment for Environmental Services - PSA and the adoption of sustainable practices that contribute to the quality, quantity and flow of water from the Tocantins-Araguaia and Amazon (Xingu River Sub-basin) watersheds & #8221;.

At this meeting, the team discussed the possibility of expanding the project area, as suggested by Dr. Sandra, which would include regions known to the Xavante people as Sõrepré and Wedezé. Sõrepré is a territory considered as the “cradle of Xavante culture”, located to the north of the Pimentel Barbosa Indigenous Land (TI), which has not yet been homologated or demarcated as an Indigenous Land. There is a chance that this is an aquifer recharge area, but there is no data yet to prove it. Wedezé is the birthplace of many Xavantes that today inhabit the Etenhiritipá Village. It is adjacent territory TI Pimentel Barbosa, located on the right bank of the River of Deaths. Wedezé is currently occupied by rural properties ranging from 600 hectares to 25,000 hectares.

For Fernanda Reichardt, & #8220; this meeting was an initial but essential conversation to start the discussion of the creation of the action plan that will act in the governance and viability of the PSA in Xavante territory & #8221 ;.
