A Munduruku Indian warrior carries a monkey he hunted for food during a jungle search for illegal mines and miners in their territory near the Tapajos river, a major tributary of the Amazon in western Para state January 19, 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.

The Turkana are traditionally nomadic pastoralists, but they have seen the pasture that they need to feed their herds suffer from recurring droughts and many have turned to fishing. However, Lake Turkana is overfished, and scarcity of food and pastureland is fuelling long-standing conflict with Ethiopian indigenous Dhaasanac, who have seen grazing grounds squeezed by large-scale government agricultural schemes in southern Ethiopia. The Dhaasanac now venture ever deeper into Kenyan territory in search of fish and grass, clashing with neighbours. Fighting between the communities has a long history, but the conflict has become ever more fatal as automatic weapons from other regional conflicts seep into the area. While the Turkana region is short of basics like grass and ground-water, it contains other resources including oil reserves and massive, newly discovered underground aquifers.

Native American Leland Morrill, a member of the Navajo nation, poses for Reuters in his home in Los Angeles, California September 12, 2013. When a 4-year-old Cherokee girl was reunited with her adoptive parents on Monday night, it potentially signaled the conclusion of a custody battle that entangled governors from two states and worked its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. But for many Native Americans, the questions raised by the case over tribal adoptions, heritage and child welfare, remain unresolved. Morrill, 46, said his Mormon adoptive parents did a good job raising him after he was removed from a hospital at age 2 by a caseworker who didn't believe his life on a poor Navajo reservation with elderly relatives was safe for a child. But he regrets that he and his cousin, both adopted by Stanley and Gwena Morrill of Utah, were "separated from anything that we would have known if we had stayed around our culture." The Morrills said they never witnessed any coercive adoption practices and that Leland came to them with scars, injuries and other signs that pointed to an unhealthy environment.

Tribal violence in south Sudan has killed hundreds of people in recent months and at least 40 people in the past week. Attacks stemming from disputes over cattle have escalated in recent months in south Sudan between two rival ethnic groups in an area where livestock are prized by southern pastoralists and represent wealth, status and stability in fraught times.

Long derided by white Australia as savage, the tribal system of "payback" remains at the core of remote Aboriginal communities but is often at odds with the white man's law of the land.

NIGERIAN SOLDIERS STRIP-SEARCH SUSPECTED MILITANTS.
Nigerian men strip their shirts for soldiers to search for tribal scars in the oil-producing Niger Delta January 5. Members of the ethnic Ijaw Egbesu cult have spearheaded protests to demand a greater share of the region's oil wealth for local people in which up to 26 have died. So far the loss in oil production as a result of the disturbances has been much less than during a wave of attacks on multinationals last year which shut in as much as a third of Nigeria's two million barrels per day.
