Indian Tribes of Brazil
Book Description HTML
My book briefly discusses the colonization of Brazil, the Indian tribes of Brazil, the attitudes of the colonizers and the colonized. The book takes an educational and activism role, educating the reader about the historical injustices suffered by the indigenous peoples of Brazil, the theft of their lands, bodies of water, and mineral rights. It also dwells on the devastating effects of hydroelectric dams, roads and highways dissecting Indian lands, expansionist ranching, settlers and squatters, state and government agencies that are often not doing enough. The violations and intrusions of Indian territories, even after legal demarcation, often introduced diseases, decimation of cultures, languages, and religions, and the activists and organizations striving for justice.
