World Indigenous Games
Ahead of the Summer Olympics in 2016, Brazil is host to a new international event - the World Indigenous Games, with contests including a hockey-like game using a ball of fire.

Competitors from ethnic groups in Brazil, also from as far afield as New Zealand and the Philippines, take each other on in events from tug-of-war and log-carrying, as well as soccer and athletics.
