Indians in Brazil

Published by Beatriz Tur
When the first Europeans arrived in Brazil in 1500 it was home to over 10 million Indians. Five centuries of murder, torture, disease and exploitation ravaged this population, and by the 1950s their population had plummeted to an all time low of about 100,000.

Eminent senator and anthropologist Darcy Ribeiro estimated that last century one tribe became extinct every year. He also predicted there would not be a single Indian left by 1980. Almost 1,500 tribes are believed to have become extinct since 1500.

CONTENTS
‘Today my people see their land invaded, their forests destroyed, theiranimals exterminated and their hearts lacerated by this brutal weapon that iscivilisation. For the white and so-called civilised people this may seem likeromanticism. But not for our people – for us it is our life.
