What do you think about having celebrities and filmmakers being the spokespeople for indigenous peoples? Why do you think policymakers don’t listen to them when they represent themselves?.

 It is not quite true to say that indigenous people are not chosen as ambassadors or that people do not listen to them. Six indigenous people have been chosen by Canada, for instance. (Also, one thinks of Malala representing her village).  But it is true to say that very few indigenous people are articulate, photogenic or media savvy to be able to make an impact , force people to listen to them – and do something about the people they represent. Hence ambassadors like Angelina Jolie, who are truly passionate and care about the indigenous people they represent, can and do make a big impact. They attract media attention and can highlight the problems in a way that would otherwise be difficult or impossible. Hence such ambassadors are necessary.
