TAPAJOS RIVER, Brazil
An overview of the Tapajos river inhabited by Munduruku Indians, who are actively searching for illegal gold mines and miners in their territory, in western Para state January 28, 2014. The Munduruku tribe has seen their land encroached on by wildcat miners in search of gold, and the tribe's leaders travelled to the capital Brasilia last year to demand the federal government remove non-indigenous miners from their territory. Rather than wait for a court decision to start the process - which could take years - the Munduruku decided to take matters into their own hands and expel the wildcat miners.
