Brazil’s First Nations Demand to Be Heard

With the 2014 World Cup only hours away from initiating, let us re-examine the plight of our relatives: the Indigenous Peoples of Brazil.

As FIFA, the Brazilian government, ranchers and multi-national corporations continue attempting to marginalize Brazil’s First Nations, its warriors, women, young people and elders continue demanding to be heard.

The images above are from various recent protests throughout Brazil. We will be highlighting their struggle and sharing their stories in the coming weeks as the World Cup is played. In the meantime, read our previous posts on this story, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and discussion.
