Etnolog a cestovatel

Mnislavu Zelenému se možná jako jedinému z bělochů dostalo cti tančit posvátný pohřební tanec kuarup na největší slavnosti indiánů Xingu v Brazílii. Studiu života indiánů věnoval bezmála čtyřicet let svého dobrodružného života (mimo jiné byl i pekařem, přístavním dělníkem, reprezentantem na mistrovství světa v judu, velvyslancem, listonošem i číšníkem). Založil nadaci Velká Amazonie a pralesní vědeckou stanici -- jejich cílem je přispět k poznání života v Amazonii a alespoň trochu zpomalit rozpad indiánské civilizace. O původních obyvatelích pralesa tento muž, který byl adoptován indiány a po revoluci se v Praze přihlásil k národnosti yawalapiti, říká: "Oni svého štěstí dosahují každodenně, my vlastně skoro nikdy, pořád se nám vzdaluje."

Ethnologist and Explorer

Mnislav Zelený was probably the only Caucasian person who was honoured to dance the sacred funeral kuarup dance at the biggest festival of the Xingu Indians in Brazil. He has studied the life of Indians for almost forty years of his adventurous life (among other things, he has also been a baker, a dock worker, a judo team member at the World Championship, an ambassador, a postman and a waiter). He established the Velká Amazonie (Great Amazonia) Foundation and a rainforest scientific station -- their aim is to contribute to the understanding of life in Amazonia and to slow down the decay of the Indian civilization. After the Velvet revolution, this man, who was once adopted by the Indians, claimed he was yawalapiti. When asked about the original inhabitants of virgin forests, he says: "They experience their happiness every day, we almost never do, and we're actually moving away from it."


About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
