Indians in Brazil

Survival, 2001– 2nd edition (pp 100)

This full colour book, illustrated by fabulous photographs, tells the history of Brazilian Indians from the time of the European invasion. It focuses on Brazil’s most vulnerable peoples, telling the stories of some of the most isolated tribes. It also explores more general themes, such as shamanism, first contact with outsiders, and land. The book contains many first hand testimonies told here for the first time.
The movement for tribal peoples. Survival is the only organization working for tribal peoples’ rights worldwide.
We work with hundreds of tribal communities and organizations. We are funded almost entirely by concerned members of the public and some foundations. We will not take national government money, because governments are the main violators of tribal peoples’ rights, nor will we take money from companies which might be abusing tribal peoples.
About 250,000 supporters from nearly 100 countries have helped us financially; millions now routinely seek our information, published in seven languages. We never restrict our information or materials only to those who can pay. We want everyone to know about tribal peoples.
