KADIRIRI RIVER, Brazil
Munduruku Indian warriors dance and sing traditional songs after stopping for the night on their search for illegal gold mines and miners in their territory near the Kadiriri river, a tributary of the Tapajos and Amazon rivers in western Para state January 24, 2014. After soliciting government help to expel wildcat miners from their territory with little response, the Munduruku tribe is now taking the search for and expulsion of all non-Indians engaged in illegal mining into their own hands. The wildcat miners have long been exploiting Indian land, often by either threatening indigenous communities or making individual agreements with some of their leaders.
