Brazil: "Foreigners in our own country": Indigenous Peoples in Brazil
The cases and situations documented in this report represent different examples of the complex reality faced by indigenous peoples in Brazil today. What unites them is that they are all situations that have arisen as a result of many decades of State inaction. Amnesty International is concerned that the current Brazilian government, which has so far failed to implement a coherent strategy for resolving the problems faced by Brazilian Indians, is merely repeating and exacerbating the errors of the past. The organisation is calling on the Brazilian authorities to fulfil their constitutional and international obligations to protect Indians and their land.
