Today, Brazil celebrates Indigenous Peoples Day. However, on a day that is supposed to celebrate their ancestors, culture and stories, many of Indigenous Peoples are instead fighting for their lands and their rights.

Forests are essential, the branches give us the breath of life and the roots give us wisdom and renewal. Protecting Indigenous Peoples is essential along with the lands.

Why do we have to impose our culture to these indigenous people? Who gave modern people the right to impose their culture to another? These indigenous people have existed even longer than most of us. Why bother them in their natural habitat. Leave them in peace greedy modern people.

indigenous people of Brazil are suffering with the rape pillage and plunder of their traditional lands by the Government and overseas investment. These traditional peoples are the deemed care takers of their lands and modern day greed do not like their attitude. So remove them from the land and forget about them is the policy.
