Brazil’s Ancestral Land War - 09 Sep 2013
Reuters photographer Lunae Parracho has documented the Guarani tribe, who 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 being considered one of the most progressive in the world. The struggle highlights the risks being run by an agricultural superpower whose leftist government is trying to sort out centuries of ethnic disputes over ownership of the land from which much of the nation's wealth sprouts.

A Guarani Ava Indian girl has her face painted as they live on the edge of their ancestral land they call Tekoha Yvoh'y, while awaiting a court's decision on the eviction of farmers occupying the land, in Guaira, Parana state, near the border with Paraguay, August 2, 2013. The Guarani tribe is immersed in a bloody conflict with farmers over possession of their ancestral land that has characteristics of a territorial war, in spite of Brazil's indigenous policy being considered one of the most progressive in the world. The conflict highlights the risks being run by an agricultural superpower whose leftist government is trying to sort out centuries of ethnic disputes over ownership of the land from which much of the nation's wealth sprouts.
