Angel of the Amazon, a compelling music drama by Evan Mack, is based on the true story of Sister Dorothy Stang, who devoted her life to protecting the Amazon Rainforest and the Indigenous people who make it their home. In 2005, at the age of 73, Sister Dorothy was martyred at the hands of destroyers of the Rainforest, who felt her passion for the Earth and all of its gifts to be a threat.

An eyewitness later reported that in the midst of this terrifying situation, Sister Dorothy’s final words were "This is my only weapon,” as she opened her bible, and began reading the Beatitudes, "Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven."

Her sacrifice launched a global movement to save the rainforest.

Who is Sister Dorothy Stang?

Sister Dorothy began her ministry in Brazil in 1966. After becoming a citizen of Brazil, she spent the rest of her life defending the rights of rural workers, as well as indigenous people of the area. While working with them, she had become so outspoken that she began to receive death threats. However, Sister Dorothy was met with widespread love from the surrounding communities and became known as "Dot" in the local area. Pictured above, are the protests that followed after her murder on February 12th, 2005, when she was shot six times by assassins hired by a logging company. 
Angel of the Amazon explores important themes of environmental protection and Indigenous struggle by unfolding the story of Sister Dorothy.
Her mission illuminates the struggles and obstacles that are prevalent around the world today: standing in solidarity with the oppressed, protecting the environment, honoring and preserving Indigenous cultures, while balancing the need for jobs with the needs of the environment.

We commend the courage and strength of the Indigenous people and Sister Dorothy Stang in their fight for environmental justice.
