I live in Brazil and i dont care too much about this. One thing I know is that was a big decision to Brazil. The highest court last year approved the demarcation of land for Indians where there were people already living and grewing to survive. After
approval of the Supreme Federal Court, the Indians raided the plantations,
destroyed homes and these people had to leave these lands. All pearsons outside Brazil think that they hold a culture, but almost all have been living in a modern society, use and purchase everything like a normal person, has homes with television and to me they are extremely lazy ... You may notice the clothes they wear, is extremely rare to see a true indian today in Brazil and to me see the way they act is almost revolting ...

This native people here is no more an own culture.
I live in a city with some of them, they just dress like old times when trying to gain more fake needs. They aready don't need to work, have milions of hectares of forest protected by law and an endless list of benefits. If u come here will see what I am talking about.
We work and pay by low 40% for taxes.
We try really hard to make our progress without damage to the future generations, some times that requires a lot of management plans to get our basics. We have bigger problems to take care of. = (

Regardless of tribe status in Brazil, anything that has to do with deforestation and NO FUTURE replanting is a big NO NO.

I agree with the person above, regardless of the way those people are in reality, the fact still remains that they are destroying a gigantic portion of forest, a forest our ecosystem desperately needs. Instead of trying to stop the problem, they are making it worse. All people care about is money, who cares about screwing up the planet.

This photo was taken in 2002. All the information is incorrect. it's a hoax from Brazil against the president Dilma Rousseff. It happens every day.
