Pictures of the Year: A Picture and its Story
Guajajara Indians "forest guardians" detain a logger during a search for illegal loggers on Arariboia indigenous land near the city of Amarante, Maranhao state, Brazil, September 17, 2019. Reuters Photographer Ueslei Marcelino: "The photo shows the actions of the indigenous Guajajaras against illegal logging in the Amazon Rainforest. I followed these ÒGuardians of the ForestÓ for seven days on their mission to expel invaders. We walked many miles with no potable water, food, tents or adequate weapons. Spiritually the Guajajaras believe they are defending their land as predestined by their ancestors. "I go to sleep, and I can never forget my grandfather before he died saying that one day, I would defend our land with my own life," one man known as Wolf, said. This logger was tied up and interrogated. After attempting to remove the trucks loaded with the logs they were burned. Then the man was released and the Guajajaras returned to their villages. Some celebrated the fact that logging was paralysed for a few days at least. This was not an easy assignment. The loggers fired at the indigenous people. Physically the pace of the Guajajaras can be compared to high-performance athletes Ð the distance was immense, and they faced jungle heat and dehydration. For me, it was seven days of expectation, for a few minutes of confrontation in the darkness of the forest." REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino/File Photo SEARCH "POY STORIES 2019" FOR THIS STORY.

Japan's "Kakure Kirishitan," or "Hidden Christians," preserved their faith in secret during centuries of persecution. "I have not picked a successor yet, but I have confidence I can keep going myself and I will surely pass this on," said Murakami. "I cannot let my generation be the ones who destroy what my ancestors protected with their lives." Murakami spent three years learning the orasho from books based on crumbling 18th century scrolls that he still owns. REUTERS/Issei Kato SEARCH "HIDDEN CHRISTIANS" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Japan's 'Hidden Christians' fear for religion's fate
Masaichi Kawasaki, 69, a descendent of 'Hidden Christians', chants 'orasho' in front of an altar adorned with a statue of the Virgin Mary at his home on Ikitsuki Island, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan, November 4, 2019. Japan's "Kakure Kirishitan," or "Hidden Christians," preserved their faith in secret during centuries of persecution. "I worry that what my ancestors worked hard to preserve will disappear, but that is the trend of the times," said Kawasaki. "I have a son but I don't expect him to carry on," he added. "To think this will disappear is sad, without a doubt." REUTERS/Issei Kato SEARCH "HIDDEN CHRISTIANS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
