Pictures of the Year: A Picture and its Story
Guajajara Indians "forest guardians" detain a logger during a search for illegal loggers on Arariboia indigenous land near the city of Amarante, Maranhao state, Brazil, September 17, 2019. Reuters Photographer Ueslei Marcelino: "The photo shows the actions of the indigenous Guajajaras against illegal logging in the Amazon Rainforest. I followed these ÒGuardians of the ForestÓ for seven days on their mission to expel invaders. We walked many miles with no potable water, food, tents or adequate weapons. Spiritually the Guajajaras believe they are defending their land as predestined by their ancestors. "I go to sleep, and I can never forget my grandfather before he died saying that one day, I would defend our land with my own life," one man known as Wolf, said. This logger was tied up and interrogated. After attempting to remove the trucks loaded with the logs they were burned. Then the man was released and the Guajajaras returned to their villages. Some celebrated the fact that logging was paralysed for a few days at least. This was not an easy assignment. The loggers fired at the indigenous people. Physically the pace of the Guajajaras can be compared to high-performance athletes Ð the distance was immense, and they faced jungle heat and dehydration. For me, it was seven days of expectation, for a few minutes of confrontation in the darkness of the forest." REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino/File Photo SEARCH "POY STORIES 2019" FOR THIS STORY.

Japan's "Kakure Kirishitan," or "Hidden Christians," preserved their faith in secret during centuries of persecution. "I have not picked a successor yet, but I have confidence I can keep going myself and I will surely pass this on," said Murakami. "I cannot let my generation be the ones who destroy what my ancestors protected with their lives."

Kunta Kinte island was a slavery shipping point and is now named after a Gambian man from Juffrey, who according to the Alex Haley's book, Roots:The Saga of an American Family, was among 98 slaves who were shipped to the United States in 1767. "Kunta Kinte island is very important for me, is part of our history, for me is not only taking people to the island, many tourists I transported to the Island use to ask me how i feel this land ? we have to preserve this island for the young coming generations, we need to let them know about it we should never forget what this land have been used for. Emotionally I feel sad about my ancestors, the rough treatment used against them, a kind of uprooting.if you see the island is very small now because of the erosion and is under UNESCO protection, is good to preserve it as world heritage site and one of the slavery shipping point" Aboulie said.

"The Slave House of the Goree Island is an historic site, a place of remembrance,, is a very important journey that must be made by all Africans, to see the atrocity that humanity has lived for centuries,  emotionally, I was able to measure the extent and severity of the wounds suffered our ancestors African black undergone by by human beings like them. I discovered in my country Cameroon, in the lcoastal region, our ancestors were slaves owners and traders, it is important to continue to talk about the slavery as long as we are on earth that the generations to come, and ourselves can know what we experienced as an injury and what the human being could endure, not to accuse but to heal and reconcile the peoples in the hope of building a world more harmonious and more respectful of human rights and solidarity with each other", Sammuel said.
