Spain's Queen Sofia gets a tribal welcome in Brazil

7 OCTOBER 2003
Spain's Queen Sofia received a colourful welcome from some indigenous tribesmen when she arrived in Brazil on Monday.

The queen was welcomed by Chief Aritana of the Yawalapiti tribe when she touched down in the city of Brasilia. And members of the Yawalapiti, who hail from the Upper Xingu region in northern Brazil, performed a traditional dance in her honour.

Sofia also chatted with Chief Aritana about indigenous handicrafts and the issues affecting indigenous peoples in the country.

The 65-year-old is visiting Brasilia in her capacity as honorary chairperson of the International Microcredit Forum. The summit aims to help eradicate world poverty by providing credit for development projects in poorer countries.

"I hope that this formidable tool in the fight against poverty, together with the application of other policies and development projects, will come to fruition as quickly as possible," she said.

"Microcredit is fundamentally based in the idea of solidarity, and the government of my country could not neglect to support such an effective means to help the world's poorest people. Spain is unequivocally committed to the fight against poverty."

www.casareal.es - Su Majestad la Reina se reunió con los representantes de las catorce tribus que pueblan la región selvática del Alto Xingú, en el Mato Grosso, y presenció los bailes rituales de bienvenida y agasajo ofrecidos en su honor. El líder de las tribus, Aritana, agradeció a Doña Sofía su visita, que prometió intentar que su próxima visita incluya las zonas donde habitan.

www.casareal.es - Su Majestad la Reina, durante su visita a Santa María, una de las zonas más castigadas por la pobreza y la violencia de Brasilia, donde se reunió con las mujeres que forman la asociación "Aguja Mágica". Este grupo de 230 mujeres, gracias a su esfuerzo, trabajo e imaginación, y ayudadas por el programa de microcréditos, consiguen el sustento necesario para sus familias, aproximadamente unos 84 dólares mensuales, confeccionando ropa de casa, de la que se exporta la mitad de su producción a países como Estados Unidos o Italia. Esta asociación espera en breve recibir los microcréditos que permitan incorporarse a otras 200 mujeres a esta iniciativa.

Doña Sofía contempló las más de trescientas obras de artesanía, muchas de ellas realizadas gracias al programa de microcréditos. Allí, el Gobernador de Piauí, Wellington Días, impuso a Su Majestad la más alta condecoración de su estado, la Orden del Mérito Renascensa.
