As an Indigenous futuristic artist, she illustrates how new temporalities can guide us towards possible futures rooted in ancestral elements.

The project "Favela de Kaboko is Aldeia" - funded by the Brazilian federal government through the Paulo Gustavo law - features a series of photographs documenting the lives of indigenous people in the urban landscapes of Pernambuco. Through her lens, Tiriri showcases resistance, resilience, and the fight against ethnic erasure.

These bodies reaffirm their unique indigenous identities through new entanglements, creating new ways to express themselves and r-existing.
