ancestral land war

Sem Título-1
Guarani Kaiowa Indians gather at the place where fellow Indian, 15-year-old Denilson Barbosa, was killed by farmer Orlandino Carneiro who was occupying the ancestral land they call Tekoha Pindo Roky, in Caarapo, Mato Grosso do Sul state. Guarani indigenous people are immersed in a bloody conflict with farmers over possession of their ancestral lands; a conflict that has characteristics of a territorial war in spite of Brazil’s indigenous policy. REUTERS / Lunaé Parracho
