During her time with the Kayapó people in the Amazon, photojournalist Cristina Mittermeier documented a society that relied on their local waterway to survive and found their way of life threatened by a massive new dam. In British Columbia, she found First Nations protecting their sacred headwaters, and in Hawaii, a new community of indigenous peoples seeking to reclaim their connection to the sea. She learned that one concept bound these three disparate communities together: “Enoughness,” or taking only that which you need. Mittermeier will use her photos as she shares her experience.
