Associação Terra Indígena Xingu (ATIX)

Dec 14, 2023

While indigenous people have cultivated organic products for centuries, ATIX is the first indigenous collective to have gained organic certification in Brazil, greatly enhancing their economic independence. Comprised of 16 indigenous communities, it sells two tons of honey each year with income going to community members.

ATIX also passes down traditional knowledge and customs through a certification program and is a loud voice in the fight for indigenous rights.
